AMATS wheels out its new 2016 Bike Plan

application thumbnailAMATS is pleased to wheel out its new 2016 Bike Plan for the Greater Akron area.  The plan identifies the region’s bikeway needs and presents recommendations to improve its bicycle network.

While the region’s current network has over 108 miles of shared-use paths and 35 miles of bike lanes, the 2016 Bike Plan offers ideas and strategies to complete and fill-in remaining gaps to create a safer and more connected bikeway system.  The plan includes broad policy and program recommendations to encourage cycling safety, education and improved integration with community bike plans.

The new plan builds upon the agency’s original vision for the region’s network that was unveiled four years ago.  The 2016 Bike Plan was developed using input from area cyclists during AMATS’ Bike-N-Brainstorm events, discussions with community leaders, and sound data analysis.
