Paste in Place worked with Gehl Architects to create illustrations comparing the cost of constructing bicycle infrastructure with the cost of infrastructure for other transit modes including automobiles, subways and light-rail systems. Our research and graphic investigations reveal that bicycle lanes and cycle tracks offer a phenomenal value compared to other modes. Additionally, we developed a human-centered metric for measuring transit infrastructure cost per person (ICP) in order to make the data more understandable and meaningful to individuals. The graphics are intended, in part, to assist municipalities in making principled decisions about their investments in transportation infrastructure.
