This thought curiously parallels that on the Jim Click thread. Where's the bicycling line of influence drawn when considering alternate transportation? We are a sub-group looking for a group. There is no advisory group for pedestrians, bus riders or rail riders. If there exists a grand master transportation plan for the region ( I think there might be), what is their vision and why don't we hear more about it. Bicycles don't get much in the alternative transpo world. It may look like a lot compared to the others forms that get nothing and I'll wager the other jurisdictions aren't happy with all the regional money eaten up by the UA, Downtown street car line. Bicycling may be looked to as the major player because we have at least managed to form a representative group - such as it is, but we're way not equipped to say how it should be overall. Yea, I recall the existence of some transportation advisory group, but I don't think anyone can sit through the meetings.
