Establish or enhance existing bikeways to transit stations.

Strategy 1.4.3 Details

Chapter 1Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.
Objective 4Establish bikeways to priority destinations.

Strategy 3

Establish or enhance existing bikeways to transit stations.

On-street bikeways currently serve 47 of the 124 CTA stations in Chicago and 22 of the 76 Metra stations. Identify priority stations to serve and safe, convenient routes. Establish bike lanes where appropriate. Develop a Bike to CTA and Bike to Metra signage program.

Peformance MeasureEstablish new or enhanced bikeways to 10-20 transit stations by 2008 and to an additional 10-20 transit stations by 2015.
Tracker NotesStatus unknown. A signage program like that has not been developed beyond the signed route program, in which some of the signs direct people to train stations.
