This session looks at how landscape architects break down the barriers to bicycling through infrastructure, design, and policy. It addresses how a bike-share system can be a key component of an equitable transportation infrastructure.
1) Examine the barriers that prevent people from bicycling for transportation.
2) Learn about successful encouragement programs and street designs that target these barriers.
3) Gain a better understanding of bike-share systems and the process of developing a system at both urban and site scales.
4) Discover the various initiatives Boston is taking to become a world-class bicycling city.
