New National Report Ranks States and Cities on Biking and Walking

Posted on by Blog Administrator

2016BenchmarkingReport

When it comes to biking and walking, how do states and large cities stack up? A new report from the Alliance for Biking & Walking puts local and state efforts in perspective in Bicycling and Walking in the United States: 2016 Benchmarking Report.

The broad trend is clear: Walking and biking are on the rise across the United States. Active transportation has broken through into the mainstream conversation and been embraced by powerful stakeholders. But the real story is far more complex than a single trend line or a simple narrative.

Our transportation choices are significantly impacted by a wealth of different factors—from gender to income to available infrastructure—and a new report from the Alliance for Biking & Walking illuminates these often overlooked indicators that shape American mobility.

Bicycling and Walking in the United States: 2016 Benchmarking Report collects and analyzes data from all 50 states, the 50 most populous U.S. cities, and 18 additional cities of various sizes. The report traces the rise of walking and biking and explores the intricate intersections between transportation, health, and so much more.

The 2016 benchmarking report, released on March 2, is funded by CDC’s Healthy Community Design Initiative.
