Bike and Pedestrian Infrastructure – The Best Investment

A GRAPHIC FROM OUR FRIENDS AT

WEST WINDSOR BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ALLIANCE

In this time of massive unemployment and government spending, it’s great to know that building bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure creates more jobs than other infrastructure spending (because it’s less automated).

Perhaps more importantly, creating a safe way to bike and walk places improves health, reduces pollution and improves the local economy, since people who bike and walk to shopping buy more frequently.

There’s no better investment.
