Applications are now being accepted for Green Lane Project Phase 2, a campaign to catalyze the installation of protected bike lanes (also called cycle tracks or separated lanes) on city streets. The two-year campaign will establish a close working partnership of six leading cities poised to pave the way to better streets.
Full applications are due January 14, 2014. Winners will be announced in March, 2014.
Six focus cities will be selected from across the U.S.to receive a suite of technical, financial and strategic resources, opportunities to network with peers on the development of protected lanes, and national recognition as a leader in the rapidly evolving practice of building better bike lanes. The winning cities will have a combination of political will, committed staff, community support and ambitious plans to implement protected bike lanes during the two-year campaign period of 2014-2015.
In early 2012, the first phase of the Green Lane Project selected six U.S. cities — Austin, Chicago, Memphis, Portland, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. — to form a select partnership of leaders supporting the creation of next-generation protected bike lanes in America. Since the Project launched, green lanes have flourished. In year one of the Project, the number of protected lanes on city streets expanded from 62 to 102. By the end of 2013, the number is expected to double again, to nearly 200.
And we’re just getting started.
We're looking for the next six cities ready to lead the nation by rethinking their streets.
