First Mile / Last Mile

The Biking Experience

The goal for developing First Mile/Last Mile access to transit strategies is to increase the effective range of transit stations (currently about 1/4 mile) allowing more transit patrons, or increase the number of transit patrons within the effective range. This can involve improving the walking and biking experience, increasing safety and security. It can also include innovative strategies, such as bike-share, car-share, local electric vehicles, etc. SCAG is currently at work developing a regional First Mile/Last Mile strategy.

Recently completed strategies include:

Triple Bike Racks

Most buses in the region have bicycle racks that can accommodate two bicycles. If we can safely incorporate a third bicycle on the rack, we increase the ability of buses to accommodate bicyclists by 50%.
