Conserve by Bicycle Program Study

Florida Department of Transportation

Traffic data were collected for 17 roadways with various bicycle facility types and built environments, and demographic and street characteristic data were collected for the surrounding areas. The data were fitted to a multinomial logit model to predict the probabilities that a trip on a roadway under given conditions would be made by bicycle, transit, or on foot, relative to the probability of making the trip by private motor vehicle. Four factors were found to influence shifts from motoring to cycling in Florida roadway corridors and five different factors corresponded to increased recreational cycling in a corridor.
