Where Do People Bicycle? The Role of Infrastructure in Determining Bicycling Behavior

Event Date: 
Friday, May 16, 2008, 12:00pm to 1:00pm PDT
Speaker(s): 
Jennifer Dill, Associate Professor, School of Urban Studies and Planning, PSU

This seminar will present results from the BikeGPS study that collected data from Portland area bicyclists using GPS technology. The study collected data from over 150 cyclists for seven days each during 2007, resulting in detailed information for over 1,500 bicycle trips throughout the urban area. The GPS data provides detailed information on the amount, location, and speed of bicycle travel and allows us to answer questions about route choice. For example, how much to people ride on roads with bike lanes, on bike boulevards, or paths? Do these patterns vary by gender, age, or other factors?
