Level of Service tool for bicycle along urban arterials

U.S. Engineeering firm Sprinkle Consulting has developed a tool to measure the level of accommodation provided for cyclists along arterial routes. The tool provides a means of understanding how cyclists react to road conditions, treatments and enhancements aimed at making their ride safer and more appealing. Sprinkle worked through a process of field surveys, observing cyclists using typical metropolitan streets in the U.S.

The paper was presented at the 2006 Pro Walk – Pro Bike conference in Madison, Wisconsin, in 2006.
