Increased use of and access to bicycling/active transport is one aspect of transportation planning and design that may help resolve problems linked with human mobility. Active transport is associated with increased health, reduced traffic congestion, sustainability, and potential reduction of emissions associated with vehicular travel, though it must be a feasible transportation option for those benefits to be realized. This session acts as a forum for researchers and professionals to exchange ideas and findings as they relate to continued understanding of bicycling as a transport mode. Topics could include, but are not limited to: (1) spatial and spatio-temporal analysis of bicycling activity; (2) bicycle share systems; (3) bicycling infrastructure decisions and design; (4) bicyclist route choice; (5) bicycling data handling, availability, and limitations/uncertainty; (6) dynamic context and bicycling activity; (7) interactions and connections between bicyclists and other modes (e.g. bicycle crashes, bicycling as access to transit).
