  41. 41. Ray LaHood U.S. Secretary of Transportation “Bike projects are relatively fast and inexpensive to build and are environmentally sustainable; they reduce travel costs, dramatically improve safety and public health, and reconnect citizens with their communities.”
  42. 42. Ray LaHood U.S. Secretary of Transportation “To set this approach in motion, we have formulated key recommendations for state DOTs and communities: •  Treat walking and bicycling as equals with other transportation modes. •  Go beyond minimum design standards. •  Collect data on walking and biking trips. •  Set a mode share target for walking and bicycling. Now this is a start, but it’s an important start. These initial steps forward will help us move forward even further.”
