National Bicycling and Walking Survey
As part of the U.S. National Bicycling and Walking Study, PPS prepared a case study concerning the effects of environmental design on the amount and type of bicycling and walking. This book is the result of that case study. Focusing on design applications in downtowns since the 1960’s, PPS researched and analyzed such approaches as pedestrian and transit malls, skywalks, covered sidewalks, street and sidewalk improvements, and traffic calming measures, and defined the major public environmental factors that encourage walking and bicycling. Examples were culled from a variety of cities: Boulder, CO; Hindersonville, AL; Minneapolis, MN; New Haven, CT; Oak Park, IL; Ottawa, Ontario; Portland, OR; San Bernadino, CA; and Seattle, WA.
