|Chapter 8||Bicycle Messengers: Bicycle messengers provide a valuable service, delivering material in a timely and an environmentally-friendly manner. Chicago's bicycle messenger companies employ more than 300 bicyclists who make an estimated 1.1 million deliveries each year. This chapter identifies three objectives intended to encourage more use of bicycle messengers and encourage safe and responsible riding.|
|Objective 1||Increase the use of bicycle messenger and delivery services.|
Develop standard delivery check-in procedures for bicycle courier services.
Complicated and inconsistent check-in procedures often delay bicycle messengers. Develop procedures in conjunction with building owners and managers. Distribute to Loop building managers and courier companies.
|Peformance Measure||Develop standard building check-in procedures in 2006; widely distribute on an annual basis to encourage use.|
|Tracker Notes||This hasn't happened, despite demand and expressed desire to participate from messengers, and the messengers' union.|
