Sumter Street Bike Lanes

Organization: University of South Caroline

Year: 2009

Amount: 5000

Status: Project complete

Type: Bike routes/lanes

Address: Sumter Street, University of South Carolina, SC

Our $5,000 grant helped the University of South Carolina include bike lanes in the streetscaping of a popular downtown street, helping to make the campus and community safer and more bike friendly. As part of the project, USC, which has seen student ridership nearly double in the last year, conducted research to measure the use and the economic impact of the new lanes. Their methodology is replicable by other communities.
