Building an Accessible, Low-stress, Safe, and Sustainable, Bicycle Infrastructure Network for the City of Pittsburgh

The long-term sustainability of bicycle infrastructure networks call for systematic design and planning of bicycle infrastructure that takes into consideration the presence of pedestrians, bicycles, and other vehicles. In this research, the project team proposes to utilize massive data in the existing multi-modal transportation systems to facilitate decision making on expanding infrastructure networks, as well as to provide bike-friendly route information to cyclists that considers riding easiness, bus coverage, safety risks and car frictions.
