Increasing bike lanes will increase cycling and safety. Having dedicated bike lanes will make people feel more confident in riding their bikes as they will have less fear of being on the same lane as a car or truck. Being on a different mode of transportation like a bike will reduce traffic and promote healthy living. Plus it promotes a healthy lifestyle in Austin no matter which side you live on, East or West.

Micheal! Thank you! I'm a facilitator here with City:One and all of your contributions are extremely helpful in painting a detailed picture of what mobility looks like in Austin today.

It sounds like changes need to be made that allow cyclists to feel and safe when biking around Austin. Can you expand on any ideas you have to increase the safety and visibly of cyclists in Austin?
