PRIORITIZING PEOPLE OVER AUTOMOBILES BY RE-PURPOSING THE NETWORKED INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE LANE
What is the incentive for Houstonians and people throughout the U.S. to change their mode of transportation from automobiles to bikes? What type of infrastructure would it take to make this a reasonable alternative? And how can we combine investment in public works with investment in civic infrastructure that connects users to programs to networks? In 2009, the CDRC proposed that the already-networked infrastructure of Houston’s HOV lanes, which then carried 200,000 passengers and drivers daily, into a non-stop bikeway with easy access to many points throughout the city.
