Guidelines for Analysis of Investments in Bicycle Facilities

The objective of this study is to provide transportation decision makers at the federal, state, and local levels with guidelines to evaluate the projected costs and benefits of bicycle-facility investments. The guidelines should include a methodology capable of evaluating when facilities are warranted, which particular facility is most appropriate, how investments in bicycle facilities compare with investments in other modes, and how to integrate bicycle-facility cost-benefit analysis into the overall transportation planning process.
