Philadelphia: Bicycling up 38% during SEPTA Strike

Link: Philadelphia: Bicycling up 38% during SEPTA Strike

“This spike in bike commuters is a glimpse into Philadelphia’s future as an increasingly bicycle-friendly city and confirm that building buffered bike lanes, off-road trails connecting the city to its suburbs and providing bicycle parking can change commuting habits.”

There was also a 27% increase in the number of women bicycling during the strike. This is encouraging because a recent study published in Scientific American found that an increase in female bicyclists is a good indicator that a city is perceived as more bicycle-friendly.
