Separated Bike Lanes: Could Jacksonville Benefit?August 12, 2010 73 comments Print Article
With JTA attempting to force their dreams of bus rapid transit down the throats of residents, bicycle and pedestrian safety improvements continue to be ignored. The City of Vancouver is implementing something that Jacksonville needs more than bus only lanes: Separated Bicycle Lanes.
Considering that Jacksonville is one of the country's deadliest cities for cyclist and pedestrians, an argument could be made that separated bicycle lanes should be installed along major transit corridors before bus only lanes.
