.@GreenLaneProj sez: “Half of all trips Americans make are less than 4 miles” (query: how much of this is private transport that doesn’t include cumbersome loads?), “Bike commuting has increased by 53 percent”, “Since 2011, the miles of protected bike lanes has doubled”.
Compelling stuff overall, but I certainly don’t have all the necessary data. Protected lanes are hard and expensive to work into existing infrastructure, but if there’s some verified evidence of benefits out there - benefits to all road users - then I’m sure it’s something we can all embrace.
