Phoenix is Clueless on Bike Lanes

December 11, 2017

The City of Phoenix just announced that they are adding 176 miles of bike lanes. Why? They have no idea. At our last regular meeting of the Phoenix Citizens Transportation Commission I asked a general question about recent and projected bike traffic in the downtown Phoenix area. Although there were more than half a dozen representatives of the Phoenix Transportation Department in attendance, not even one could answer my question. I then asked the pregnant question: “What are we doing?” The chairman of our committee echoed my question. Again, no one could answer.
Sadly, I think I know the answer: The city is responding to the demands of a political interest group (as usual) and not to the logical needs of our transportation infrastructure.
