Pedaling to Prosperity Bicycling Will Save Americans $4.6 Billion in 2012

Fact Sheet

More Americans are choosing to bicycle for transportation, but government funding of safe bicycling projects is not keeping up. Though biking and walking account for 12% of all trips in the U.S., these transportation modes receive only 1.6% of federal transportation spending–far less than their fair share. Federal transportation policy should support the development of biking, transit, and pedestrian infrastructure to ensure our roads are safe, convenient, and accessible for all.
