The Power of People Near Protected Bikelanes


In celebration of World Bicycle Day, ITDP is delving into what it means to measure People Near Protected Bikelanes and what this measurement means for urban accessibility.For years, cities and governments have focused on length or number of kilometers as a measure of how comprehensive or impactful their cycling infrastructure is. With the debut of the Atlas of Sustainable City Transport, ITDP suggests that viewpoint is outdated. Rather, we have the  data  to show that it’s not just how  many kilometers of  lanes that makes  the  most impact — it’s where the lanes are built. With the Atlas dashboard, ITDP offers every city in the world a more  modern, more meaningful, way of measuring progress through the  indicator of People Near Protected Bikelanes.
