"Almost every American City is currently well stocked with would-be bikers who are only waiting for an invitation to hop on the saddle, and it is likely that those cities that invest now in (relatively inexpensive) biking infrastructure will have a meaningful advantage in attracting
the next generation of new residents
"
-Jeff Speck (Author of Walkable City)
"It's possible to change your streets quickly, it's not expensive, it can provide immediate benefits, and it can be quite popular. You just need to

their hidden in plane sight."
- Janette Sadik-Kahn NYC City Director of Transportation

Technical details
On April 23rd, the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) voted to approve $1.3 million in funding for two bikeshare projects and to add them to the Baltimore region’s Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) as a new project
Claremont, CA Bike Station
New York City, NY Prospect Park Redesign
crashing resulting in injuries went down by 63%
Speeding on the corridor is down from 74% of cars on Prospect Park West speeding to just 20%
There has been
no change in traffic volumes or corridor travel times.
Prospect Park West remains the fastest route through Park Slope.
-600 square feet
-78 bicycle racks, restroom, changing room, repair stand/ tools for self repair, retail
-repair service & bike rentals are available through partnership with JAX Bicycle Center
DC Bike Station
houses 100 bicycles in 1,600 sq. ft.
- “free standing ultra-modern glass & steel design”
-staffed by Bike & Roll DC 66 hours per week
-bikestation parking available to members 24/7
-secure bike parking, private changing rooms, day use lockers for rent, repairs, retail sales
-4.5 million dollar parking garage****
-DOT in DC says it gives rail and bus commuters an unconventional parking spot
-glass & steel structure that is environmentally friendly based on the design of a bike helmet
-tandem racking system provides double parking for 130 bikes
-high security system to prevent theft
-average 50 parks per day, or over 18,000 a year

Now what?
Cycles are affordable to buy, maintain, & use
construction of routes/ parking cost much less than equivalent for cars
saves space
cycling does not create noise pollution
cycling increases the quality of life even for non-users
bicycles cause very few serious injuries when accidents occur
bicycle use provides opportunities to earn more income in development contexts
bicycle use provides extra employment opportunities, particularly for low-income groups
Why do we need to "
re-imagine"
the streets?
Wow, okay. But what can we do?
What's holding Baltimore back?
bicycles have minimal carbon footprint
cycling has a positive effect on physical health & mental health
cycling, walking and public transport increase the appeal of city centers and stimulate local trade.

Intersections with More Than

“We’ve moved very quickly with paint and temporary materials. Instead of waiting for years of planning studies and computer models to get something done, we’ve done it with paint and temporary materials. And proof is not in the computer model, but a real world performance of the street.”
-Janette Sadik-Khan: New York’s Streets? Not so mean anymore

Comparisons:

DC: $5,000,000 Bike Share program
Hopkins Plaza Art installation: $200,000
Baltimore Street Sidewalk: $2,100,000
Beautification of Liberty Dog Park: $75,000
Main Project costs:
-implementation of bike lanes (paint vs. physical barriers)
-bike station (price varies with size & design)
-beautification of space (chairs, benches, trees, plants, umbrellas, color)
funding: Bike Master Plan
ESTIMATED COST BREAKDOWN:
~$25,000 per mile for our project b/c of bad road conditions
~0.5 miles of bike lanes we want to add to our area (the connecting bike lanes turn into sharrows)
~$75,000 for beautification of the space
~$756,000 for the bike station (CA)
