Legislation Encourages Bike Racks and Easy Access to Transit Stops

Commuter Bikes Lined Up Outside Third Street Stuff

Heavy traffic and the worst carbon footprint per capita in America plague Lexington. However, new incentives that encourage developments to locate near transit stops and install bike racks offers a solution.

The Fayette Alliance urges Council to adopt legislation that provides incentives, which encourages developments to locate near transit stops and install bike racks. The increased use of alternative transportation options can reduce traffic congestion, our carbon footprint and air quality problems while providing more transportation options for our entire community. The Brookings Institution recommended that Lexington provide more transportation choices to address our carbon footprint and air quality crisis.

Council voted this legislation into law on October 21st, 2010.
