Taveras, group unveil plan for bicycling in city

Posted 11/18/13

PROVIDENCE – Mayor Angel Taveras this month joined members of the Providence Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission to unveil Bike Providence, a bicycling master plan that promotes a bicycle-friendly city.

According to a news release, the plan looks to set a culture, identify priorities for bicycling improvements, guides the investment of future funding for the Providence bicycle network, and expands the citywide network.

“The Bike Providence plan reflects our commitment to biking and other forms of alternative transit, and offers a comprehensive blueprint for future investments that will make Providence an even friendlier community for bicycling,” Taveras said.

The plan serves as a framework for improving the existing bicycling system, increasing bike use and emphasizing the “five E’s” to improve the overall environment and culture of bicycling in Providence: engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement and evaluation.

Funded by a Planning Challenge Grant from the R.I. Division of Planning, the plan was developed by the Providence Department of Planning and Development, the Providence Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission, and consultants from Vanasse Hangen Brustlin Inc.
