Status:  Complete
Report Date:  06/29/2013


This document responds to the Minnesota Department of Transportation's Transportation Research Synthesis (TRS) request, May 2013, related to biking and its economic impact. The TRS instructed the team to: Compile previous efforts that quantify the economic benefits of bicycling, respond to the sectors and benefits outlined in the TRS request (health, employment, recreation, transportation, quality of life, and tourism), and identify methodologies in existing literature to quantify the described benefits, and pay special attention to work completed in Minnesota and identify areas where findings of economic impact are robust and areas where more work is necessary to understand the economic impact of bicycling in Minnesota.
