Greater Downtown Area Bicycle Network Plan
A world-class bicycle network with protected, connected, attractive and accessible infrastructure
The City of Detroit desires a world-class bicycle network with protected, connected, attractive and accessible infrastructure. In addition to improving public transportation, the City is choosing to invest in bicycling—an economically efficient mode of transportation that promotes cleaner air, reduces noise and emissions, and improves public health. Through a planning process that completes this summer, the City is working with Copenhagenize Design Company, an international leader in bicycle urbanism and design, to update the citywide non-motorized plan, beginning with a greater downtown area bicycle network plan.
Project objectives include creating connected mobility options that encourage the use of bicycles as a normal form of transport and protected infrastructure to support riders choosing to cycle throughout the greater downtown area.
