Long Beach, CA: Separated Bike Lanes

Posted by Infra on Monday, February 18th, 2013

Long Beach installed separated lanes in the downtown area. A study one year after installation shows (1) bike ridership has increased by 33% along the street, (2) pedestrian use has increased by nearly 15%, (3) bike accidents are down 80 percent from 5 per year to 1, (4) vehicle accidents are down nearly 50% from over 90 per year to fewer than 50 and (5) the number of bicyclists on the sidewalk has decreased by 50%.

Please bring your bike to downtown Long Beach…and as the banners along the street say “Dine, shop and bike in downtown Long Beach.” – gacrawford on YouTube
