Bike/Ped Projects Create 46% More Jobs Than Road-Only Projects
Bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure projects create more jobs per dollar spent than other road construction projects, according to a study released today by the America Bikes Coalition.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure: A National Study of Employment Impacts, authored by the Political Economy research Institute, finds that on average, the "road-only" projects evaluated created 7.8 jobs per million, while the "bicycling-only" projects provided 11.4 jobs per million.
