Updated National Bicycling and Walking Study released

The National Bicycling and Walking Study: 15-Year Status Report, published by the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center, is an update of the 1999 and 2004 reports: "...the 15-year update measures the progress made toward the original goals of lowering the number of fatalities while increasing the percentage of trips made by bicycling and walking."

"The number of reported walking trips has more than doubled since the first survey, from 18 billion in 1990 to 42.5 billion in 2009. Bicycling trips saw a similar increase, from 1.7 billion to 4 billion reported trips during the same time period." The report includes information on national trends in funding, mode share, and safety. It also summarizes current programs that promote biking and walking such as the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program, Safe Routes to School, and Livability initiatives.
