Bike Lane Infrastructure Improves Ridership in New Orleans
Tulane University PRC researchers assessed the promising built environment strategy of creating bicycle lanes to increase physical activity in New Orleans. The city installed its very first on-street bicycle lanes in the spring of 2008, and gave the researchers the unique opportunity to observe and evaluate the before and after effects of this new infrastructure on bicycle ridership.
Bike lanes can have a positive impact in creating a healthy neighborhood.
