This Section provides 43 tables and graphs showing data on bicycling and walking in the 50 United States.
There is a notable divergence among states with increases in the rate of bicycling to work happening in most states, but increases in the rate of walking to work happening in only a few states.
- The rate of biking to work increased in 38 states between 2007 and 2016.
- The rate of walking to work increased in only 14 states between 2007 and 2016.
Similarly, the rate of pedestrian fatalities per pedestrian commuters has only fallen in seven states, while the rate of bicyclist fatalities per bicyclist commuters has fallen in 29 states. These data point to the need for states to continue taking action on bicyclist and pedestrian safety – with a strong emphasis on pedestrian safety.
Use this Section to find out about current conditions for bicycling and walking in states and how states are improving conditions for people who bike and walk in order to enable healthy, active transportation.
