Activating Communities with Active Transportation

Linking transit, pedestrian and bike infrastructure: Can it really create economic vitality and help build communities? Research is just beginning to answer those questions. Active transportation requires partnerships across government (for example, transportation, housing, community development, health, planning), nonprofit organizations and the private sector. Explore how active transportation is extending existing transportation systems, expanding transportation options and connecting communities. Discuss the prerequisites needed for success. Hear how pedestrian and bike-sharing programs are being used for commuting, last-mile solutions to support community development.

  11. 11. Rudin Center for Transportation, NYU Wagner Economics 10 / 22 Portland, OR - “Even though bicyclists and pedestrians spend less money per trip, they make more frequent to a business throughout a month and end up spending more on average than their car-driving counterparts.” (Clifton, 2013) Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN - Customers of the Nice Ride bike share system spent an estimated additional $150,000 in one season at restaurants and other businesses near Nice Ride stations (Wang et al., 2012). Bicycle Infrastructure = Better Business 74% of CitiBike trips are for work purposes, errands, personal business, and shopping. (NYCDOT, August 2013) Pedestrian and bicyclists reported spending more money of the course of a week than users of any other transportation mode. (Transp. Alternatives, 2012) Installation of 9th Avenue Protected Bike Lane correlated with a 49% increase in retail sales between 23rd and 31st streets. (NYCDOT, 2012)
