Case Study No. 9: Linking Bicycle/Pedestrian Facilities with Transit

National Bicycling and Walking Study

Federal Highway Administration

New flexibility in funding under the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991 and the requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments offers new opportunities and strong encouragement for transportation agencies to work together in improving pedestrian and bicycle access to transit. Action in this area offers the potential of highly cost-effective reductions in air pollution emissions, increased transit ridership, alleviation of chronic capacity shortages at many park-and-ride lots, and reduced traffic congestion near transit stations.

This report is one of twenty-four reports in the National Bicycling and Walking Study series.
