  • Description

The Alliance Benchmarking Project is an on-going effort to collect and analyze data on bicycling and walking in all 50 states and at least the 50 most-populated U.S. cities. This first biennial report, released August 29, 2007, reveals data on bicycling and walking throughout the U.S. including: bicycling and walking levels and demographics; bicycle and pedestrian fatalities; bicycle and pedestrian policies and provisions; funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects; bicycle and pedestrian staffing levels; written policies on bicycling and walking; bicycle infrastructure including bike lanes, paths, signed bike routes, and bicycle parking; bike-transit integration including presence of bike racks on buses, bike parking at transit stops, and hours per week that bicycles are allowed on train; and public health indicators including levels of obesity, physical activity, diabetes, and high blood pressure. The report is full of data tables and graphs so you can see how your state or cities stacks up. Inside you will find unprecedented statistics to help support your case for increasing safe bicycling and walking in your community.
