Impacts of Bicycling Corridor Improvements on Users’ Behaviors in Large Cities

Bicycling and bike sharing program is one of the first and last mile strategies to maximize mobility in major cities. First and last mile issues essentially refer to connectivity between public transport nodes and the user's origins and destinations in multimodal transportation. Investments in bicycling infrastructure improve mobility and provide cyclists and potential cyclists a safer environment to cycle to work and to public transit nodes. The proposed project is to identify the impacts of bicycling corridor improvements along roadways and intersections on users’ behaviors. The research will provide an analysis of the effects of the corridors treatments and improvements and it explores bicyclist behavior using data collected before and after bicycling corridor improvements.
