A Mathematical Optimization Model for a Bicycle Network Design Considering Bicycle Level of Service

Finding ways to efficiently increase bicycle mode share is important for successful transportation planning. This paper formulates and solves a mathematical program that optimizes the location of bike routes and bike lane additions for an existing urban road network. Trip distance and bicycle level of service are considered when creating bike routes that connect origin-destination pairs. A case study uses data from the Baltimore Service Level Evaluation from 2003 to examine an area which displays the mechanics of the model.
