The Bottom Line: How bicycle and pedestrian projects offer economic benefits to communities
Tuesday, May 7, 2013
2:00 p.m. — 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Building pedestrian and bicycle facilities don’t just add new transportation or recreation options to a community, they bring economic value. This webinar will focus on the economic impact of new or expanded bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

Presenters Darren Flusche with the League of American Bicyclists, Ginny Sullivan with the Adventure Cycling Association and Mark Wyatt with the Iowa Bicycle Coalition will discuss the latest research highlighting the dollar value bicycle and pedestrian projects bring to a community as well as offer compelling examples of pedestrian and bicycle projects from entire states, to big cities to rural areas.

This is the second of two webinars being offered jointly by the PBIC and the Bike League. The first presentation, held April 9, focused on funding bicycle and pedestrian projects under MAP-21. The archive of that webinar can be found at www.walkinginfo.org/webinars.

PBIC offers free, public Webinars approximately every month. To register for upcoming Webinars and to access archived presentations, please visit www.walkinginfo.org/webinars.
