What needs to be considered when evaluating bike route location options?
We would like your input into the evaluation criteria that will be used to choose the best bike route locations.
All of the criteria need to align with three key directions from the City of Edmonton’s strategic plans: supporting communities, providing transportation options, and encouraging sustainability.
Key themes have been identified for the criteria, including balancing the impact on other travel choices, like driving or walking; the difficulty and cost of constructing the bike facility; how the bike facility could impact the local area; and how well the route could serve cyclists and support ridership.
The project team has identified some criteria to reflect these themes, including:
- Ease of addressing barriers (e.g. crossing a ravine)
- Connections to other routes and destinations
- Existing traffic volumes and delays
- Vehicle lanes lost or gained
- Parking lost or gained
- Trees lost or gained
- Ability to address community traffic issues (e.g. speeding and shortcutting)
- Sidewalk space lost or gained
- Bus stop space lost or gained
We want to hear your ideas. From the list above what could be added and/or removed? Is there anything that is more important to you?
