Safer Walking and Biking Options


Woman Riding a bike on a busy street

Adding bike sharing options, creating protected bike lanes, upgrading crosswalks, and creating safer, more walkable streets are important components of any plan to alleviate traffic.

The result is a small but notable impact on the amount of congestion on arterial roads.
