Rahm Emanuel Expands Chicago's Commitment to Bike-Centric Development
In july, CDOT announced a second protected bike lane, which will move Emanuel closer to his promise of 100 protected miles within four years. In September, an extension of the B-Roll sharing program announced the addition of 5,000 and 500 stations by the end of summer 2012.
"These pro-bicycle planning and policy initiatives announced this past summer are the first of bicycle-minded transportation changes for Chincago," writes Renee Patten. "With these initiatives, Chicago will enhance the design of streets and mold urban transportation for all users of the road; pedestrians, cyclists and pedestrians alike, enhancing the sustainability of our transportation options."
