The Interconnected City: Orlando Bike Study

Orlando_Citywide_Trail_Priority_Ranking_36x42_HDR_Cropped-1A bikeable city is one where people ride bicycles because it is a convenient, fun, safe, and healthy choice.  As the City of Orlando wraps up it’s bike study, expect a blueprint for a high-quality bicycle network that connects to places people want to go and provides a time-competitive travel option to move about the city.

The timing couldn’t be better. Over the next 20 years, it is estimated that  Orlando will add 75,000+ new people – a jump to 337,000 residents within the city limits. Part of the strategy for accommodating this growth and its associated mobility needs will be bicycle investments and nurturing Orlando’s bicycle culture so it benefits the city’s livability, affordability, public health, economic competitiveness, and natural environment – and not to mention catering to UCF’s new downtown campus.  For those interested in checking out the city wide DRAFT trail plan or the proposed bike facilities, please visit http://www.cityoforlando.net/transportation-planning/bike-study/.
