|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.|
Encourage an industry-sponsored study to identify the key barriers to the increased use of bicycle messengers in Chicago and opportunities for expansion and diversification.
|Peformance Measure||Complete study by 2007; implement key recommendations in 2008.|
|Tracker Notes||I don't know of such a study.|
