More on the TIGER Grants: Biking Wins Big

This is a guest post by Jesse Prentice-Dunn of the Sierra Club Green Transportation Campaign.

As I recently blogged, TIGER grants announced this week will fund transportation infrastructure projects that help build the foundation of a more efficient transportation system that reduces global warming pollution. In particular, biking and pedestrian infrastructure were big winners, with 24 of the 51 funded projects including some biking or walking component. Two grants in particular will fund bicycling and walking infrastructure networks in Philadelphia, PA, and Indianapolis, IN. Other funded projects will add bike lanes to bridges and downtown streets.

Creating safe and accessible biking and walking infrastructure could not come at a better time, as levels of commuting by biking and walking are skyrocketing. This month's SIERRA magazine features a great story on bike commuting and pedaling towards a post carbon future. Check it out!
