THE NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL SCENE

CHANGING MINORITY & LOW INCOME PERCEPTIONS OF BIKE SHARE
-> Smart Cities Dive reports when bike share was not understood or accepted when it expanded to the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. A grant from the Better Bike Share Partnership provided resources for a community-led campaign. A historically rooted, minority-led organization lead the charge. Community groups and churches organized group rides, and schools offered bike education classes. Ads were rewritten to reflect the voice and priorities of the neighborhood. Discounted memberships were publicized and bulk memberships were offered to employers to get more people to sign up. From there, more listening sessions in the neighborhood helped Citi Bike explore new dock locations that would better serve the community. Just a year later, Bed-Stuy was an unexpected poster child for Citi Bike. Personal engagement has become a top priority for successful cities trying to expand mobility options. http://bit.ly/2CKogRj

[See Research section for links to 2 studies of minority and low-income neighborhood bike share perceptions and concerns.]

MEASURING EQUITABLE ACCESS TO SHARED BIKES & E-SCOOTERS
-> Populus released a case study that analyzed the dockless bike share system in Washington, DC. (Measuring Equitable Access to New Mobility: A Case Study of Shared Bikes and Electric Scooters: http://bit.ly/2H0y3XQ) It provides an overview of methods and solutions they developed to facilitate the robust, consistent measurement of equitable access to new mobility services, including dockless bikes, scooters, carsharing vehicles, or other new alternatives. These services have the potential to expand access to transportation services - if they are deployed in collaboration with cities, and if access to new mobility services can be consistently measured with accuracy.

NEW TRAFFIC SAFETY PARADIGM: EXPOSURE, TOTAL VEHICLE TRAVEL
-> In a new report, the Victoria Transport Policy Institute calls for a new traffic safety paradigm that recognizes exposure, total vehicle travel, as a risk factor, and therefore the safety benefits of vehicle travel reduction strategies. (A New Traffic Safety Paradigm: http://bit.ly/2p7GLpE) The old paradigm assumes that driving is generally very safe, and favors targeted safety programs that reduce special risks. The new paradigm recognizes that all vehicle travel imposes risks, and so supports vehicle travel reduction strategies such as more multi-modal planning, efficient transport pricing, Smart Growth development policies, and TDM programs. This report examines our emerging understanding of traffic safety and strategies that can provide large benefits.

NEW MASS TRANSIT REVENUE SOURCE: LEGALIZING & TAXING CANNABIS
-> The Rudin Center for Transportation Policy & Management at New York University released a report that examines how legalizing and taxing cannabis in New York City may provide an opportunity to generate a revenue stream for mass transit. (A New Revenue Source for Mass Transit: Legalizing and Taxing Cannabis: http://bit.ly/2FeXv9o) This report identifies trends in cannabis legalization in other states, determines how this legalization contributes to state revenues, and predicts how its legalization may affect New York State revenues.

TRANSPORTATION CHALLENGES FOR THOSE UNABLE TO DRIVE
-> The Human Environment Digest reports the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC) released the results of a poll, which finds significant transportation challenges for older adults and people with disabilities. (Transportation Needs and Assessment: Survey of Older Adults, People with Disabilities, and Caregivers: http://bit.ly/2FgXh2u) Poll respondents indicated that a lack of accessible and reliable transportation alternatives to driving caused feelings of frustration and isolation. Respondents living in small towns and rural areas were more likely to feel that they were unable to access alternatives to driving. http://bit.ly/2Fjhd4P

TRB: CRITICAL ISSUES IN TRANSPORTATION 2019
-> The Transportation Research Board (TRB) released a document that identified and organized an array of important transportation issues affecting the future under 12 key topics. (Critical Issues in Transportation 2019: http://bit.ly/2FiwWRs for the full book, or Critical Issues in Transportation 2019: Policy Snapshot: http://bit.ly/2FbH4eE) In each of these areas, TRB posed a series of 63 crucial questions to help guide thinking, debate, and discovery during the next 5 to 10 years. It hopes this document will help spur and inform an urgently needed national debate about the future of transportation and help researchers frame and inform choices about the most promising paths forward. The issues have been identified and documented from a US perspective, and are also common across developed nations.

DUTCH CYCLING VISION: FACTS & FIGURES OF CYCLING BENEFITS
-> Bicycle Dutch reports the Dutch Cycling Embassy has created a document that compiles the currently available numbers and figures of multiple research studies about Dutch Cycling into one document. (Dutch Cycling Vision: http://bit.ly/2FeLFNb in English and also available in French and German) As part of the national bicycle agenda Tour de Force 2020 "the Dutch Cycling Vision showcases what cycling creates, in terms of economy, environment, health, happiness, accessibility, safety and social equity." The author of the Bicycle Dutch blog has translated the Dutch Cycling Vision into a 5-minute video with a transcript of its narration. http://bit.ly/2FgCNqr

BOLOGNA, ITALY ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION INCENTIVE PROGRAM
-> Price Tags reports the "Bella Mossa" program in Bologna, Italy (translating as "Good Job") runs for 6 months of the year and partners with 100 local businesses to provide active transportation users with vouchers for items earned through a point system, including beer, ice cream, coffee and movie tickets. GPS trackers ensure that there is no cheating. Funded by European Horizon 2020 Program, Bella Mossa reduces vehicle use and auto emissions. In its first six months the program recorded over one million activities with 22,000 people taking part in the program. A short BBC video describes the program, how it works and its impact. http://bit.ly/2FeScrj


REGIONAL AND LOCAL ACTIONS

NEW YORK, NY: HUMAN PED TRAFFIC JAMS WORSEN OVER HOLIDAYS
-> WLNY-TV, CBS New York, reports and provides video of the human traffic jams that are causing havoc on New York City streets. A year ago the Brooklyn Bridge was experiencing a 27% increase in weekend pedestrian traffic, and a 104% hike in bike traffic. The City is actively investigating the feasibility of expanding the Brooklyn Bridge walkway. Pedestrian traffic jams are happening all over the city in Midtown, TriBeca, and the Theater District too. The City expects to have a new pedestrian mobility plan in place by Thanksgiving in time for the 2019 holiday season. https://cbsloc.al/2F9a7i8

-> Streetsblog USA reports New York City's mayor and police commissioner admit failure during holiday pedestrian gridlock, however neither called for restrictions on automobiles or for seizing automobile travel lanes to widen sidewalks. They focused on the potential of vendors clogging the sidewalk. The mayor did not fully deflect attention away from the obvious solution: removing 1 of the 6 travel lanes on Sixth Avenue during the holiday season. City Hall has repeatedly refused to comment on whether the city would consider car-free zones like those instituted in London, Madrid, Paris and other cities, and the mayor has been lukewarm about congestion pricing. http://bit.ly/2FfDznw

NEW YORK, NY: 5TH STRAIGHT YEAR OF LOWER TRAFFIC DEATHS
-> Smart Cities Dive reports New York City marks its fifth straight year of declining traffic deaths. The city saw just 200 traffic fatalities in 2018, the lowest level since record keeping began in 1910. According to preliminary data, bicyclist deaths dropped from 24 in 2017 to 10 last year, while motor vehicle deaths went from 58 down to 37. However, the number of pedestrians killed in traffic increased from 106 to 111. Mayor de Blasio said that the deaths of 12 pedestrians in December were a "sober reminder that this new milestone is less a cause for celebration than a reminder that even with this year's success, we have much more to do to meet our ambitious (Vision Zero) goal." http://bit.ly/2TorG1F

SAN FRANCISCO, CA: TRAFFIC DEATHS CHALLENGE VISION ZERO GOALS
-> The San Francisco (CA) Examiner reports its city's ambitious goal to eliminate traffic deaths by 2024 slipping further out of sight. As of the end of November 2018 the number of traffic deaths on San Francisco streets for this year was at 22, 4 more than at the same time in 2017, and 2 more than at 2017's end. Traffic deaths include anyone killed in a vehicle, as well as pedestrians and cyclists killed in collisions. San Francisco aims to reach its "Vision Zero" goal through three major efforts: traffic enforcement via SFPD, education efforts to help curb dangerous behaviors, and engineering streets to be safer with changes like new bike lanes and wider sidewalks. http://bit.ly/2TolYwC

WASHINGTON POST: TOO MANY PEOPLE DIED IN DC CRASHES IN 2018
-> A Washington Post editorial states too many people died in DC traffic crashes in 2018, and we can do better. The number of 2018 traffic deaths represents more than a 13% increase over 2017 and is also up from the 28 fatalities in 2016 and the 26 fatalities in 2015. The District is not alone in seeing increases (Fairfax County, for example, also saw an uptick this year), but the numbers are troubling given Mayor Muriel E. Bowser's much-ballyhooed launch almost 4 years ago of a Vision Zero initiative to eliminate traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries. That the District failed to make similar reductions, and, indeed, backslid even further, is due to what critics say has been a lack of resources, energy and urgency by the Bowser administration. In October the city revamped its approach. Tougher penalties for traffic infractions took effect January 1, and the city's transportation department plans to install "No Turn on Red Light" signs at 100 intersections, create hardened left turns that add rubber curbs to prevent drivers from cutting off a corner and implement other traffic-calming strategies. https://wapo.st/2F78KS3

WASHINGTON, DC METRO ALLOWS BIKES DURING RUSH HOUR
-> Streetsblog USA reports passengers on the Washington Metro will finally be allowed to bring their bikes aboard during the morning and evening rush hours. The policy change is the result of decades of advocacy by local bike advocates. Metro had previously allowed bikes on board, but not between 7 and 10 a.m. and 4 and 7 p.m. New, more-spacious 7000 Series traincars and new funding for extended rush hour trains -- with eight cars each -- helped make the agency comfortable with the changes. http://bit.ly/2F8Xm80

SEATTLE, WA HIRES DIRECTOR OF CITYWIDE MOBILITY OPERATIONS
-> Smart Cities Dive reports Seattle, WA has appointed a retired U.S. Air Force Major General as the city's first Director of Citywide Mobility Operations Coordination. This position is the point of contact for the city's 29 departments, ensures they develop coordinated responses to mobility challenges, coordinates efforts including managing the right of way, conducts incident response, ensures the continued delivery of emergency services and makes sure the city is working closely with partners for operations and planning. The next 4 years public and private mega-projects, such as light-rail and a new convention center, will make getting into and around the city difficult. http://bit.ly/2FhI29o

SEATTLE, WA: SIDEWALK CONDITION ASSESSMENT TARGETS REPAIRS
-> An article in the Fostering Multimodal Connectivity Newsletter describes Seattle, WA's Sidewalk Condition Assessment Project to accelerate its repair program and support pedestrian access. Before the Seattle DOT performed a sidewalk assessment in 2017, it lacked condition information for 70% of its sidewalks. The project validated sidewalk data, material, dimensions, and conditions on over 34,000 city blocks. To equitably manage and prioritize sidewalk work and inspections across the city, rather than rely solely on customer requests, SDOT's Sidewalk Repair Program (http://bit.ly/2Fg9LHh) is implementing a repair and mitigation prioritization approach that considers safety, mobility impacts, cost, and high usage areas and other key locations under the Americans with Disabilities Act. After analyzing the sidewalk data, SDOT executed a three-week "shim blitz," in which crews placed 2,760 shims--thin strips of asphalt--over damaged sidewalks, and beveled vertical differences to mitigate trip hazards. They have since applied over 9,000 shims. http://bit.ly/2FhDWy5

ST. PAUL, MN: DRAFT PED PLAN
-> Next City reports St. Paul, MN is putting a renewed focus on helping people get around on foot, as the city has released a draft of the city's first-ever pedestrian plan. (Saint Paul Pedestrian Plan: An Addendum to the Saint Paul Comprehensive Plan, Preliminary Draft 11.6.18: http://bit.ly/2FglTrZ) The plan emphasizes safer street crossings and adding sidewalks where none exist, especially in areas where people already walk more. The city's plan recommends increasing funding for crosswalk improvements and sidewalk construction and developing a public-awareness campaign to encourage property owners to shovel their sidewalks after a snow. But among the top recommendations from the report are encouragements to develop some basic, equitable and transparent processes for prioritizing pedestrian improvements. http://bit.ly/2CIfpiY

UTAH ENACTS .05 PERCENT DRUNK DRIVING STANDARD
-> Streetsblog USA reports Utah enacted the most aggressive standard for drunk driving in the country, lowering the legal blood-alcohol limit to .05 percent. The National Transportation Safety Board has been urging states to lower the BAC limit -- which was .08 in every state -- for a little over a year, calling it one of its "most wanted" transportation safety improvements in 2017 and 2018 because impairment begins well below .08. For those with a BAC between .05 and .08 the risk of a fatal crash is seven times greater. http://bit.ly/2Ff7g8r


THE RESEARCH BEAT

MINORITY & LOW INCOME NEIGHBORHOOD PERCEPTIONS OF BIKE SHARE
-> Smart Cities Dive reports as bike share expands, neighborhood perception is key. (http://bit.ly/2CKogRj) A recent study published in Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice on bike share systems in Chicago reinforced a persistent problem for new mobility options: Minority and low-income neighborhoods aren't always on board. (Where Does Active Travel Fit within Local Community Narratives of Mobility Space and Place?: http://bit.ly/2Fe1jsg) Researchers used advanced machine learning to analyze focus groups of residents of 2 contrasting neighborhoods. Minority and low-income residents worry bike-sharing presence is yet another sign of a gentrifying neighborhood while more pressing needs, such as safety measures or expanded broadband are not addressed.

A study from the Transportation Research and Education Center surveyed residents in Chicago, IL; Philadelphia, PA and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY and found people of color, or those with lower incomes, had more concerns about bike sharing than white or high-income people. (Breaking Barriers to Bike Share: Insights on Equity: http://bit.ly/2FfqCdy) Among those concerns were uncertainty about how it worked, and the cost and the fear that bike share would make their neighborhoods too expensive.

[See The National & International Scene for an initiative that successfully changed a neighborhood vocally against bike share to on that embraces it.]

RESEARCH EXPLAINS WHY PEDS 'BREAK THE RULES'
-> Streetsblog USA reports research explains why pedestrians 'break the rules.' A University of IL masters student used time-lapse camera to study how pedestrians interact with drivers and the infrastructure along a dangerous stretch of a street in Rockford, IL. (Walkable Rockford: Exploratory Research of Pedestrian Collisions on Arterials in Rockford, Illinois: http://bit.ly/2FjOQT1) The time-lapse videos found pedestrians' behavior is influenced a lot by the environment: They're more likely engage in risky behavior -- like walking or rolling in the street or crossing mid-block -- when the pedestrian infrastructure is incomplete or lacking. People were adapting their behavior to the conditions, often in ways that put them at risk. (See footage: http://bit.ly/2FfFw3u).

REGIONAL LOW-STRESS BIKE CONNECTIVITY ANALYSIS
-> A paper published in the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board outlines the method used to conduct a regional-scale, low-stress bicycle connectivity analysis. The goal was to evaluate the relative potential benefit of bicycle network improvements on street segments across the region. Levels of traffic stress were assigned to the road network and shortest paths were calculated between millions of places throughout the 5-county study area to identify segments that could most benefit low-stress bicycle connectivity. The results can be used as a screening tool to help planners efficiently prioritize segments for more detailed, local-level investigation and analysis. "Lowering Bicycle Stress One Link at a Time: Where Should we Invest in Infrastructure?" http://bit.ly/2FhpzK9

BIKE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AT URBAN ROAD LINKS & SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS
-> A paper published in the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board proposes bicycle level of service models for the urban road links and signalized intersection approaches operating under heterogeneous traffic flow conditions prevailing in developing countries. Extensive data collection was carried out through field investigations, videography techniques, and perception surveys to inspect which parameters primarily affect the quality of bicycling in the mentioned facilities. Statistical analysis of modeled parameters has reported that the traffic volume and crossing pedestrians have the highest influences on the quality of bicycle traffic management at urban road links and intersection approaches, respectively. "Quality of Bicycle Traffic Management at Urban Road Links and Signalized Intersections Operating under Mixed Traffic Conditions" http://bit.ly/2Fg1sv9

EXPERIENCED & IMAGINED BIKE COMFORT & SAFETY
-> A paper published in the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board examines the relationship between bicyclists' (first-person experienced) and video survey participants' (imagined) ratings of bicycling comfort and safety via real-world bike rides/surveys and a blocked experiment conducted through a web-based video survey. This suggests that imagined bicycling experiences seem less comfortable and safe compared with real experiences. "The Relationship between Experienced and Imagined Bicycling Comfort and Safety" http://bit.ly/2Fh48bQ

NCHRP ANNUAL REPORT 2018
-> The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) reports during 2018 it completed 150 research projects, published 68 research products, and approved 58 new and continuation projects. (Annual Report 2018: http://bit.ly/2FfZWJK) This Annual Report provides a concise list of research published in 2018 and a list of all active projects, projects completed in 2018, and projects that were approved in 2018 but are not yet under contract. It also presents detailed information about how NCHRP operates with oversight by the AASHTO Special Committee on Research and Innovation. Since 2001, NCHRP Reports, Syntheses, Research Results Digests, Legal Research Digests, and Web-Only Documents have been posted on the TRB website in PDF format [on the NCHRP homepage (http://bit.ly/2FgfPjh), look under "Publications" on the left].

SYSTEMIC PEDESTRIAN SAFETY ANALYSIS
-> The Transportation Research Board published a guidebook that provides a safety analysis method to proactively identify sites for potential safety improvements based on specific risk factors for pedestrians. (Systemic Pedestrian Safety Analysis: http://bit.ly/2FiL643) A systemic approach, as opposed to a "hot-spot" approach, enables transportation agencies to identify, prioritize, and select appropriate countermeasures for locations with a high risk of pedestrian-related crashes, even when crash occurrence data are sparse. The guidebook also provides important insights for the improvement of data collection and data management to better support systemic safety analyses. TRB also provides a PowerPoint presentation summarizing the project: https://bit.ly/2P29jRC.

[See Webinar section for a February 4 webinar based on this report.]

ACCESS MANAGEMENT TREATMENTS & MULTIMODAL USERS
-> The Transportation Research Board released report that describe operational and safety relationships between access management techniques and automobile, pedestrian, bicycle, public transit, and truck modes. (Assessing Interactions Between Access Management Treatments and Multimodal Users: http://bit.ly/2FfUsP6 and Guide for the Analysis of Multimodal Corridor Access Management: http://bit.ly/2FeAnbS) These reports may help select alternative access management techniques based on the safety and operation performance of each affected travel mode. They also examine the interactions between multimodal operations and access management techniques and treatments, and the trade-off decisions that are necessary.

DOWNLOAD PHYSICAL ACTIVITY GUIDELINE FOR AMERICANS, 2ND EDITION
-> Health.gov reports the Physical Activity Guideline for Americans, 2nd edition (http://bit.ly/2RO6iSD) provides evidence-based guidance to help Americans maintain or improve their health through physical activity. This second edition provides science-based guidance to help people ages 3 years and older improve their health through participation in regular physical activity. It reflects the extensive amount of new knowledge gained since the publication of the first edition. This edition of the Guidelines discusses the proven benefits of physical activity and outlines the amounts and types of physical activity recommended for different ages and populations. http://bit.ly/2Rlkzd9

APTA: TRANSFORMATION OF THE AMERICAN COMMUTER REPORT
-> The American Public Transportation Association released a report based on findings from recent research from the National Academy of Sciences, and new analysis by the APTA Research and Policy Development Department, including the results of APTA's 2018 Mobility Survey. (The Transformation of the American Commuter: http://bit.ly/2GOFOzF) The research shows that consumers view public transportation as pivotal to the future of mobility. The reasons are clear: 1) public transportation can move more people efficiently in less space, 2) as travel options continue to grow, consumers will need a way to make the various travel choices clear and routine, and 3) as consumers recognize growing income inequality and shrinking data privacy, the need to protect the public interest and serve the vulnerable will grow as well. Therefore, public transportation will serve an even larger role in the public life of cities around the nation.

BIKE RACK TO CAPTURE ENERGY CYCLISTS GENERATE WHILE RIDING
-> Springwise reports Dutch designers have devised S-Park, a bike rack system that can use kinetic energy from cycling to charge batteries. The system was proposed as part of Amsterdam's Clean Energy Challenge. As the rider bikes around the city, their front wheel produces kinetic energy, which is stored in batteries on the bicycle. When done riding, cyclists park the bike in a communal bike rack that's connected to the electricity grid. The energy that the batteries stored during the ride is then discharged into the electrical grid. The system includes a front wheel that can be popped into any bike frame. The designers estimate that each bike rack could generate about one kilowatt-hour of energy per day. The designers do not yet have a prototype. http://bit.ly/2FfpTJf
