The New York Bicycle Coalition just reported:
The National Survey of Bicyclist and Pedestrian Attitudes and Behavior has been released and is now available online: click here.
This report presents findings from the National Survey of Bicyclist and Pedestrian Attitudes and Behavior, jointly sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) and administered by The Gallup Organization. The goals of the survey were to ascertain the scope and magnitude of bicycle and pedestrian activity and the public’s behavior and attitudes regarding bicycling and walking.
This survey is the source of the statistic that 57 million American adults ride bikes, and offers a wealth of other information on cyclist attitudes and behavior which planners, city officials, and bicycle & pedestrian advocates might find useful and informative.
