THE NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL SCENE

CENSUS: 2016 BIKE COMMUTER NUMBERS DOWN
-> The League of American Bicyclists reports Census estimates released last week from the American Community Survey show the total number of US bike commuters fell slightly in 2016 for the second year in a row. (Where We Ride: http://bit.ly/2ymvR4b) The percentage of commuters who take a bike most of the way to work remained the same in several major cities several cities and fell in several others. However, Pittsburgh, Washington DC, Detroit and Cleveland posted all-time highs. http://bit.ly/2ymi0Ly

GOOGLE CROWDSOURCING NEIGHBORHOOD BUSINESSES ACCESSIBILITY
-> CityLab reports Google is making its Maps feature more useful for people with mobility challenges. Google Maps already indicates if a location is wheelchair accessible. Its latest campaign will crowdsource data from its 30 million Local Guides worldwide, who contribute tips and photos about neighborhood establishments in exchange for points and small prizes. The company is calling on them to answer 5 simple questions when they submit a review for a location. But as simple as the questions seem—Is there wheelchair-accessible seating? or Is there a wheelchair-accessible elevator?—answering them requires careful attention to detail. Google has sent out a tip sheet to help its physically-abled members answer those questions. (How to Answer Wheelchair Accessibility Questions: http://bit.ly/2wurlDM) For instance, having an elevator only makes a building accessible if the series of facilities leading to and from it are also accessible. http://bit.ly/2ww21gz

[Editor- Use the handy Google tip sheet to assess accessibility of any building.]

PARIS FRANCE: MOTORIST BACKLASH IN RESPONSE TO ANTI-CAR POLICIES
-> The debate around cars in Paris, France has become heated as a motorists’ campaign published Mayor Anne Hidalgo’s direct phone number. The backlash is in response to Paris having adopted some of the most systematically anti-car policies of any major world city, with a pro-bike, pro-pedestrian ethos. Older cars have been banned from the roads during weekdays, part of an ongoing plan to remove more polluting vehicles from the city. The lower quays of the Seine, until recently one of the busiest east-west routes across the city, have been pedestrianized, while the Rue de Rivoli, the next major east-west axis to the river’s north, is due to have its car lanes reduced as well. Car space is being slashed in many major squares, while car-free days have been introduced annually as a form of publicity campaign for a future without automobiles. The overall declared goal: to reach a point where the city is essentially car-free—a potentially reachable goal in a country, which plans to ban gas-fueled cars by 2040. http://bit.ly/2f165Oq

PARIS, FRANCE: CAR-FREE DAY TO PROHIBIT MOTORISTS ON ALL ROADS
-> Huffington Post France reports Paris, France’s annual car-free day (Journée sans Voiture) will be Sunday, October 1, 2017. The entire road network of the capital will be prohibited to motor vehicles from 11 am to 6 pm. Last year, the event involved only 45% of the capital’s streets. The idea is to show that the city can be lived in a different way, without a car. http://bit.ly/2yoIjAP

MONTREAL, CANADA ANNOUNCES CAN$150M IN CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE
-> CBC News reports Montreal, Canada has announced an investment of CAN$150 million (US$122.11 million) over 5 years to develop the city's cycling infrastructure. The goals of the investment include: more connectivity for downtown cyclists; more bike parking; and the promotion of cycling as a safe, effective and comfortable way to get around. The plan is part of the city's Vision Zero approach to safety. http://bit.ly/2ww84l8

BRITISH CITIES REDUCE TRUCK TRAFFIC VIA POOLED DELIVERIES
-> Core77 reports on how British cities are reducing truck traffic even as deliveries increase. Since the British do more shopping on the internet than almost anyone else in the world, the increased demand to deliver packages was clogging urban streets with delivery trucks, adding both congestion and pollution. British cities have begun requiring pooled delivery: competing companies to stop their trucks outside of the city limits, then consolidating all of those packages onto a lesser amount of trucks which are then allowed into the city, traffic is reduced. Regent Street in the West End of London has cut delivery traffic by almost 80% since firms there started combining deliveries in 2008. The last-mile delivery vehicles thus operate over a very limited range. This is ideal for electric vehicles that can thus remain close to their recharging home base. http://bit.ly/2jhlafT

MOBILE APP TRACKS DANGEROUS DRIVERS NEAR SCHOOLS
-> A StreetsBlog USA article asks just how bad are the drivers that zoom past your children’s school while they’re walking to class? A new map from the driving behavior analytics company Zendrive can give you a better read. The Zendrive mobile app tracks driver behaviors like speeding, hard stops, and usage of mobile devices. Overall, Zendrive found that students at urban schools tend to be more exposed to dangerous driving behaviors. http://bit.ly/2wvOHJ5

US PAYS $7.3B/YR FOR AFFLUENT PEOPLE TO DRIVE TO WORK
-> StreetsBlog USA reports the US government spends $7.3 billion a year paying affluent people to drive to work. The culprit is the commuter tax benefit, an annual subsidy that mainly offsets parking costs for people who drive to work. The people who benefit the most are high earners who drive into the US’s biggest, most congested cities and can write off the maximum $255 per month in tax-free income. The tax break for car commuters is not only regressive, it also generates traffic at exactly the worst time — rush hour — and in exactly the worst places — the central areas of major cities, according to a new study from TransitCenter and the Frontier Group. (Who Pays For Parking? How Federal Tax Subsidies Jam More Cars into Congested Cities, and How Cities Can Reclaim Their Streets: http://bit.ly/2wvx5gg) http://bit.ly/2wv7Yu9


REGIONAL AND LOCAL ACTIONS

PROPOSED CA BILL: LEGALIZE FLASHING SIGNAL CROSSING START
PROPOSED CA BILL: ALIGN REPAIR $, INTEGRATE COMPLETE STREETS

-> The Safe Routes to School National Partnership reports it is working along with others to advance two bills in the California state legislature. http://bit.ly/2yoaejY

1. AB 390 (http://bit.ly/2yo417E), would allow pedestrians to start crossing the street during the flashing portion of a crosswalk signal if they complete the crossing before the "Don't Walk" signal. Under existing law, those crossings are illegal, which has allowed ticketing stings that often disproportionately impact people of color. The bill passed the Assembly and has moved on to the state Senate.

2. SB 760 (http://bit.ly/2ynsMBe) would align the state's road repair program with the state's goals to triple walking and biking by 2020. By prioritizing accessibility improvements for repair, the bill would mean more funding for projects that make it safer to walk and bike. It would also incorporate Complete Streets requirements into some state codes, plans, and manuals, and create an Active Transportation Division to oversee the integration of Complete Streets into the state's transportation programs and performance measures.

FREMONT, CA: VISION ZERO CUTS FATAL & SEVERE INJURIES BY 25%
-> Vision Zero Network reports since the start of Fremont, CA's Vision Zero program in 2016, fatal and severe injuries have dropped 25% there. This medium-sized city (pop 230,000) re-evaluated projects and programs through a Vision Zero lens and demonstrates that integrating core Vision Zero principles into a city's work can be done without enormous costs by prioritizing safety in decision making and resource allocation. Check out details in a Q&A between city staff and Vision Zero Network staff. http://bit.ly/2ymUBJI

ST. PAUL, MN: ANNUAL PED & BIKE COUNTS SHOW 14% INCREASE
-> Streets MN reports the latest Saint Paul bike/ped traffic counts show biking and walking are at a five-year high, more-than-double for streets with new bike lanes. (2015 - 2016 City of Saint Paul Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Report: http://bit.ly/2wvxPSP) The city has used 30 benchmark sites for bicycle traffic and 25 benchmark sites for pedestrian traffic annually since 2013. The 2016 counts recorded a 14% increase in both bicycle and pedestrian traffic from 2015. Poor weather in 2015 required many of the counts to be rescheduled and pushed back into late September/early October, and may account for the large increase in observed bicycle and pedestrian traffic in 2016. http://bit.ly/2xRXamS

INDIANAPOLIS & MARION COUNTY, IN ADOPT HEALTH-BASED PED PLAN
-> Public Health Newswire reports the City of Indianapolis, IN and Marion County that surrounds it have adopted their first pedestrian plan, which makes health a primary consideration in land use, development and design practice. (Indianapolis/Marion County Pedestrian Plan: http://bit.ly/2wuCdRT) Health by Design leveraged Plan4Health funding and community partnerships, including the City of Indianapolis, the Marion County Public Health Department, the American Planning Association Indiana Chapter and the Indiana Public Health Association, among other local project partners collaborated to create the plan. Plan4Health's recently published case study, "Indy WalkWays: More than a Pedestrian Plan" (http://bit.ly/2wulP3H), details this successful and comprehensive plan to increase walkability for Marion County's more than 940,000 residents. http://bit.ly/2wl25zu

SAN FRANCISCO, CA: SENIORS PROTEST SHORT CROSSING TIMES
-> The San Francisco Examiner reports amid San Francisco's sweeping changes to street safety as part of Vision Zero, seniors are calling out a glaring omission of increasing crosswalk signal times to do not allow seniors to cross safely. At an unusual protest Friday morning on Geary Boulevard and Masonic Avenue, a group of about 50 or so white-haired protesters made their point by simply crossing the street. The light turned red when they were only halfway across the street. The city is in the process of upgrading the transit priority and pedestrian signal timing from 4.0 feet/second to 3.5 feet/second. However, older pedestrians are hoping for cross times lowered to the 3 feet/second recommended by the federal Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices in high senior pedestrian traffic areas. The city is considering responses to the concerns and has been integrating leading pedestrian intervals, which give another five seconds to pedestrians crossing the street. http://bit.ly/2j979ke

BIKE MANUFACTURER TO MATCH OR TAX FOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS
-> BikeRumor reports that after the state of Oregon passed a $15 bike tax on new bikes with 26-inch or larger wheels costing more than $200, Santa Cruz Bicycles (SCB) responded with a matching $15 donation for each bike it sells in Oregon. The proceeds from SCB will go straight into trail building efforts to benefit mountain bikers whereas the state tax provides matching grants for commuter bicycle infrastructure. http://bit.ly/2f0Mz4y

PORTLAND, OR: TEMPORARY TRAFFIC CONTROL MANUAL
-> The Portland, OR Bureau of Transportation released its Temporary Traffic Control Manual. (Traffic Design Manual Volume 2: Temporary Traffic Control: http://bit.ly/2wv77d4) This manual records the state of the practice of designing and executing temporary traffic controls in the City of Portland rights of way. They have also included typical applications that reflect Portland's infrastructure, and have documented typical work zone traffic control measures and the City's practices regarding them. http://bit.ly/2wulMoO

MAP OF MOST CRASH-PRONE INTERSECTION IN EACH STATE
-> The Drive reproduces a map to the most crash-prone intersection in each state created by a Chicago law firm. It is based on work by Time Magazine using motor vehicle and pedestrian crash data 2003-2012 from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. http://bit.ly/2wvo72E


THE RESEARCH BEAT

LOW-INCOME WORKERS' NIGHTTIME WALKING & BICYCLING
-> A recent study published in the Journal of Transport Geography addresses an important issue related to nighttime commuting of low-income shift workers who walk and/or bike to their workplace using public transit. Poor visibility conditions on sidewalks and bicycle lanes often thwart safety of their walking and bicycling activities. This paper develops a nighttime accessibility score for walking (NASW) and nighttime accessibility for bicycling (NASB) - for evaluating nighttime infrastructure for pedestrians and bicyclists. The scores consider the employment data, travel time and the physical distribution of streetlight poles along the sidewalks and bicycle lanes. For demonstration purposes, researchers used employment data from prominent service industry sectors known to employ low-income shift workers –Retail Trade, Accommodation and Food Services, and Health Care and Social Assistance. "Accessibility Evaluations for Nighttime Walking and Bicycling for Low-Income Shift Workers" http://bit.ly/2wvso68

CLIMATE CHANGE, WEATHER AND ROAD DEATHS
-> MinnPost reports hotter than normal temperatures — not cell phone use — may have caused the unusual 7% spike in road deaths that occurred in the United States in 2015, according to an observational study published in the journal Injury Prevention. (Climate Change, Weather and Road Deaths: http://bit.ly/2ym4ckb) This research hypothesized that when weather is warmer, people tend to be out on the streets more — not just in cars and other motor vehicles, but also on bicycles and on foot. It examined the association between temperature and rainfall on the annual miles driven in the U.S. per person in urban areas; and the link between weather and other factors to the number of road deaths per person in the 100 most densely populated counties in the US. This study found that for each degree increase in temperature, vehicles were driven an average of 60 extra miles per person per year; and for each additional inch of rainfall, vehicles were driven an extra 66 miles per person. The rate of road deaths was higher in warmer counties and in those with higher rainfall. http://bit.ly/2ym4cAH

IDENTIFYING DESTINATION DISTANCES THAT SUPPORT WALKING
-> A recent study published in the Journal of Transport & Health examined a new method to define network buffers to identify threshold distances for walking to seven destination types using multilevel models. Researchers found that destinations within 401m to 800m could be responsible for associations found at a network buffer of 1200m. Specifically, the odds of walking increased when local food outlets including supermarkets, cafés/takeaway stores, and small food stores, were located within 401 m–800 m but not 801 m–1200 m, suggesting that these destinations encourage walking when placed at 401 m–800 m away. "Identifying Destination Distances that Support Walking Trips in Local Neighborhoods" http://bit.ly/2wvsif4

CHINESE COLLEGE STUDENT MOTIVATIONS TO CYCLE
-> The Harvard Chan School Update reports wide cycle tracks that separate bicyclists from other traffic and bike parking facilities with security guards or cameras are among the factors that motivate college students in China to bicycle, according to a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. (Cycle Tracks and Parking Environments in China: Learning from College Students at Peking University: http://bit.ly/2wvUDlq) While China for years had a system of wide cycle tracks designated just for bicycles, cyclists now must share many of these tracks with moving cars, parked cars, and bus stops. The authors found that the students considered cycle tracks dedicated just to bicycle traffic the safest way to travel on roadways. http://bit.ly/2wk5LBT

VISION ZERO: BUILDING & MAINTAINING X-DEPT COORDINATION
-> Vision Zero eNews reports Vision Zero infrastructure and policy changes start with internal commitment, leadership and clear accountability to prioritize safety. Their new case study shares in-depth tips on the importance of planning and coordinating among diverse stakeholders to ensure successful actions, measure progress, and to report back to the public. New York City, the country's longest standing Vision Zero program, has developed an impressive and rigorous Vision Zero program life cycle and monitoring system to strategically coordinate and track progress among no fewer than 11 city departments, as well as other stakeholders. http://bit.ly/2ynemky

VISION ZERO & STRATEGIES FOR MPO ROLE
-> Vision Zero eNews announced their new resource, "Centering Safety at Metropolitan Planning Organizations" (http://bit.ly/2ymx2AR). It highlights the role MPOs can play in Vision Zero with successful strategies on safety measurement, funding, policy development, and planning from MPOs across the country. Contact the Vision Zero Network for details of the webinar they are organizing for MPO staff: info@visionzeronetwork.org.

NEW ZEALAND TOOL RATES FACILITIES FROM CYCLISTS' PERSPECTIVES
-> Auckland, New Zealand Transport recently updated its guide and spreadsheet-based tool for evaluating the quality of service of its cycle facilities from the perspective of someone on a bike. It can be used on existing or proposed facilities and can will help with decision-making on different design options for biking along a particular route. The guide and tool can be used to score facilities and to present a summary of assessment results. The guide establishes Auckland Transport's expectations for new and retrofitted cycleways; seeks to achieve consistency in their approach to designing cycle infrastructure; and ensure they are producing designs that maximize their investment. "Quality of Service Evaluation Tool for Cycle Facilities: A Practitioner's Guide" http://bit.ly/2wsxQa2

ADVANCEMENTS IN MEASURING BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCESSIBILITY
-> The State Smart Transportation Initiative offers the slides from its recent webinar, Advancements in Measuring Bicycle and Pedestrian Accessibility. Measures of bicycle and pedestrian accessibility have taken longer to implement, largely because of added complexities and data deficiencies. People on bikes and on foot are much more sensitive to the types of facilities available, exposure to nearby traffic, and other factors for which there isn't always good data. Staff from People For Bikes, Toole Design Group, and SSTI presented how these challenges are being overcome and how the measures are being put use. http://bit.ly/2sPFecb

IMPROVING PUBLIC HEALTH THROUGH PUBLIC PARKS AND TRAILS:
-> NPS Community Assistance News reports the National Park Service and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified 8 common measures to link parks and trails to public health goals such as identifying locations for easier access to parks or trails, and in describing design trends related to physical activity. Common measures can highlight the positive impact park access and use have on community health, which emphasizes to community decision makers, the importance of local parks and trails. "Improving Public Health through Public Parks and Trails" http://bit.ly/2ynlDk6

DIRECTORY OF NPS COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
-> The National Park Service launched its Directory of NPS Community Assistance Programs. The 54 programs outlined in the Directory provide funding, technical assistance, and other resources to community groups for historic preservation, investment in historic sites, recreation and improved access to public lands, and education and professional development in and outside national parks. These programs serve as economic drivers, transforming underutilized places into community assets that ultimately enhance quality of life and boost local economies through tourism and job creation. Most of the programs leverage non-federal funds and long-term support from partner organizations. http://bit.ly/2yn2EXb

HISTORY & GROWTH OF PARK(ING) DAY
-> CityLab reports on the history and growth of Park(ing) Day since its first installation in 2005. One day in late September, a group of collaborators found a parking space in a particularly gray part of downtown San Francisco, CA and converted it into a mini park. They rolled out living grass, put up a bench, and placed a potted tree. Then they retreated across the street to observe the results, hoping their urban intervention was not an arrestable offense. Within minutes, a man sat down on the bench, took off his shoes, and began to eat lunch. Another person joined soon after, and the two began having a conversation. http://bit.ly/2wvREt8
