|Chapter 4||Transit: Bicycling and public transportation are each alternatives to the private automobile. For many people, however, neither form of transportation can compete with the automobile's travel range, flexibility, and speed. But when bicycling and public transit trips are combined, they can be as convenient as car trips, and are often quicker and more relaxing, without the automobile's environmental impacts. This chapter identifies five objectives designed to improve bicyclists' access to transit.|
|Objective 5||Market and promote the bike-transit connection.|
Widely publicize the bike-transit option.
Publicize in CTA, Metra, Pace, RTA, Mayor's Office of Special Events, and Chicago Department of Transportation publications, press releases, maps, and Web sites. Publicize on event promotional materials.
|Peformance Measure||Issue 1-2 press releases per year publicizing the bike-transit option, beginning in 2006. Add links to the Bicycle Program's Web site on the CTA, Metra, Pace, RTA, and Mayor's Office of Special Events Web sites in 2006.|
|Tracker Notes||While I don't know if 1-2 press releases per year are issued to publicize the bike-transit option, I do know that all of those websites talk about biking to transit, and that it's mentioned on few promotional materials (it should be standard).|
