Topic: Bike Austin!
Presenters: Annick Beaudet and Chad Crager
Learn about Austin’s upcoming Bike Plan Amendment and Urban Trails Master Plan. Austin is one of six cities partnering with the Green Lane Project on a two-year program to implement protected bike lanes, also called green lanes. The next-generation bike lanes are separated from traffic and sidewalks, and make riding a bike for short trips an attractive option for more people. Austin’s network of green lanes is growing rapidly, with new lanes on Rio Grande, Bluebonnet, Barton Springs Road, 3rd Street, and more.
