Pedestrian and Bicyclist Standards and Innovations in Large Central Cities

Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management at NYU Wagner

"Funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and performed in conjunction with the National Association of City Transportation Officials, Inc. (NACTO), this report is the culmination of a year-long effort aimed at reviewing pedestrian and bicyclist standards and innovations in large central cities. The study involved a literature review and analysis of the challenges facing large central cities when trying to support pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as a review of several promising approaches being taken in various cities. In September 2005, a peer-to-peer session with representatives from ten cities, and several agencies and advocacy groups, was held to fill in gaps related to these approaches and policy concerns. The following report is a compilation and synthesis of the findings from both these endeavors."
