São Paulo Cycling Network Development Design: A Minimum Spanning Tree Approach

Cycling is a heated topic in social media and a political hotspot in São Paulo. The implementation of bicycles took place in the city after the cooperation agreement signed by the Municipal Bureau of International and the Institute for Transportation and development policy in 2009. The recent 10-year development of the cycling infrastructure resulted in an unconnected and scattered network throughout the city. To improve the accessibility and increase the service coverage, the study proposed the minimum spanning tree to design a well-connected cycling network. A case study of 4 center districts has been researched. The new plan aims to serve 94.49% inhabitants within 350 m of the walking distance and create links to the daily trip destinations in the regions, such as public transport stations, schools, shopping malls, hospitals, etc.
