Bicycle wayfinding signs are now up in downtown Colorado Springs, and the City is seeking input from the public about additional wayfinding routes.
Colorado Springs residents can take a short survey through July 31 to provide input in the development of new bike routes to popular destinations based people’s transportation habits and needs.
Some of the goals of a wayfinding system includes connecting trail networks and on-street facilities as well as helping supporting users of PikeRide, the city’s new bike share system.
Helps people get to desirable destinations for residents and tourists
“A strategy to encourage residents and visitors to ride bicycles is to use signage that provides information on how to access bicycle friendlier streets to reach their destination,” said Kate Brady, Senior Bicycle Planner for the City of Colorado Springs. “Bicyclists have been calling for wayfinding in recent years because they have found it difficult to navigate the most appropriate route to get to their destination using bicycle infrastructure.”
