The Economic Benefits of Nonmotorized Transportation

A new white paper, Evaluating the Economic Benefits of Nonmotorized Transportation examines potential methods for evaluating the economic benefits from nonmotorized transportation investments: commute cost savings for bicyclists and pedestrians, direct benefits to bicycle and tourism-related businesses, indirect economic benefits due to changing consumer behavior, and individual and societal cost savings associated with health and environmental benefits. This report reviews potential methods for analyzing these different economic benefits at the project, neighborhood, and larger community scale. Download the white paper here.
