SCDOT Action Item

Because I love bothering elected officials almost as much as I love riding my bike, here’s a quick action item for South Carolina residents: tell the state to allocate Alternative Transit money to actual Alternative Transit projects!

Apparently 50% of the budget gets moved over to highways every year, which is an absolute shame when you think how far the dollars can go on biking and walking infrastructure than on car-centered projects. I also like this study that shows how roads with protected bike lanes actually save money for both individuals and economies.

While you’re at it, save your DOT district rep to your phone, so it’s easy to call and tell them about these new studies and success stories from other cities as they are published 🙂
