Which US States Invest the Most in Bicycle and Pedestrian Projects

 
Following the introduction of a new transportation bill which weakens the dedication of federal funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects, the League of American Bicyclists has compiled federal bike and pedestrian funding data to determine which states are investing the most into these projects.

The data looks at which states are prioritising bicycle and pedestrian projects that create transportation enhancements, reduce congestion and improve air quality, improve highway safety, and enhancing the safety of surface transportation.

The top five in each category are listed below:

Transportation Enhancements

Congestion Mitigation Air Quality Improvement Program

Highway Safety Improvement Program

Surface Transportation Program

#1

NH

WA

FL

VT

#2

CO

WI

ME

NM

#3

GA

NY

WA

PA

#4

VT

AZ

VA

WA

#5

NM

MA

NC

GA

The League of American Bicyclists noted that “the percentage of STP and HSIP funds spent on bicycle and pedestrian spending are generally fairly low.  However, both of these sources offer a considerable amount of transportation funding.  Even though a state may spend only a few percentages of these sources on bicycles and pedestrians, this can still constitute tens of millions of dollars and shouldn’t be overlooked.”

The full spreadsheet of collated data can be downloaded here (XLSX).
