COMMUTER DEMAND FOR BICYCLE TRANSPORTATION IN THE UNITED STATES

The demand for bicycle transportation is analyzed, and the observation is made that bike-routes must be planned and constructed as part of an overall transportation system so that the total cost of cycling is less that that of driving for the majority of commuters. The cost of owning and using a vehicle and costs of commuting by car or bicycle are examined, and simulated models are used to predict the demand for bicycle transportation. The use of bicycle facilities is discussed, and public policy in this area is examined. Guidelines to be observed in the planning of bike-routes (which will stimulate heavy bicycle usage) are listed.
