Feasibility Study on Creation of Bike Paths Network in Urban Transport (Case Study: Rasht City)

Increasing growth in the extent of urban traffic raises numerous problems including air pollution, heavy traffic and waste of time in the city of Rasht. One approach to reduce this problem in most of developed countries can be considering bicycle riding in the existing transport methods, that huge benefits can be resulted in case of proper execution of this approach. In this study, for the purpose of feasibility study, creation of bike paths networks in the city of Rasht was considered starting from the Shahrdari square and passing streets Shariati, Motahari, Imam Khomeini and returning to the square. In this study, using traffic data taken from this path and random distribution of questionnaires among the users in these paths, the predictions about effect of establishment of special bike paths networks on the traffic flow were prepared. Using the results of the questionnaires, it is forecasted that using the vehicles, especially taxi, has been diminished in case of proper execution of this project, and using bike will increase for 25 times as a human-oriented transport method.
