Setting the Standard: APTA’s Guide for Bicycle Accessibility to Transit

 Facilitating active transportation is a cornerstone of building healthy, more livable communities. As more municipalities throughout the United States leverage their public transit assets in planning for future development, it is critical for both public officials and planners to recognize potential accessibility gaps, and create simple economic connections for potential users. With bicycles representing an ideal mode of transportation for short trips, creating active linkages with transit for commuters' first and last mile is a key issue. In coordination with the League of American Bicyclists, advocacy groups, and transit agencies across the country, the American Public Transit Association is currently developing a national framework for enhancing bicycle and transit connectivity through the creation of a national best practices guide. Leveraging expertise from across the country, this guide includes recommended strategies for core challenges affecting bicycle and transit accessibility including safe routes to transit, bicycle parking, on-board bicycle access and communication with cyclists. In this panel, attendees will learn about the current state of the national recommended practices guide for bicycle and transit accessibility as well as some of the leading strategies in use today.  Attendees will also hear directly from transit agency officials and bike advocates to gain direct insight into site-specific challenges as well as their innovative solutions.

The Bicyclists' Manifesto for an Autonomous Vehicle Future
"Policy goals" won't be enough to protect bicyclists once the cars start driving themselves. Strong standards will be necessary to govern the interactions between cars and bikes in an autonomous future.
