I’m so thrilled to report that another paper from the Bikeability study has been published, in the Journal of Transport and Health, titled “Dose-response association of workplace facilities and policies with commuter bicycling among adults”.
In this paper, we examined the association between workplace facilities and policies and bicycling to work in a sample of employed bicyclists residing in Travis County, Texas and Jefferson County, Alabama. Our study found that all examined facilities, bicycle lockers, locked rooms/cage, clothes storage, bike racks, and showers, as well as bike to work policies were significantly associated with bicycle commuting in this sample. Further, we found that, as the number of facilitators increase, the odds of bicycling to work also increased. We conclude that workplaces that wish to prioritize active transportation by bicycle should consider providing facilities for safe bicycle storage, as well as accommodations employees to prepare for the workday. In addition, developing and implementing policies that outline this support for active transportation are warranted.
