DC is already considered a bike-friendly major market that features a growing percentage of residents who bike to work. A project being pushed by the District Department of Transportation (DDT) looks to increase downtown’s bike-ability by installing protected bike lanes, which are physically seperated from general travel lanes, from downtown/national mall to the north end of downtown.
- 20 percent of residents in Bloomingdale, Petworth and Mount Pleasant commute by bike.
- Eight D.C. neighborhoods have a walk score of 90 or higher.
- Issues regarding car parking and new residents are holding up the protected bike lane project.
