Cost-Benefit Analysis of Bicycle Facilities">Cost-Benefit Analysis of Bicycle Facilities

The folks over at the BTA will like this one. An interesting tool for getting a quick estimate on how much a certain bike facility would cost. (from Velorution)

From the homepage:

How much do bicycle facilities cost? Can we quantify their benefits? In what cases do estimates of benefits outweigh costs?

If your community is considering building a new bicycle facility you can use this tool to estimate costs, the demand in terms of new cyclists, and measured economic benefits (e.g., time savings, increased livability, decreased health costs, a more enjoyable ride, decreased pollution).

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
