Bicycle and Pedestrian Level of Service Calculator
Walking and bicycling are highly sustainable modes of transportation within cities. By reducing trips made using motorized transportation, walking and biking also reduce the amount of gasoline consumed, emissions of greenhouse gases released, traffic congestion and can even provide individual health benefits. Cities can encourage these transportation alternatives by providing dedicated infrastructure such as bike lanes, sidewalks and "complete streets" for all vehicle types.
This calculator, created by the League of Illinois Bicyclists, is intended to determine the bike and pedestrian friendliness of particular roadways. This information can in turn be used to identify opportunities for improved or expanded services.
Note: This calculator requires extensive data inputs and is recommended to be completed by a city transportation officer or similar officials with access to detailed transportation data for the city.
