Bicycle Friendly Business Districts (BFBDs) promote, encourage, and incentivize residents and visitors to make local trips by bike, on foot, or via transit. These districts enhance services and amenities for cyclists, walkers, and transit riders within business districts and commercial corridors by developing partnerships that include local governments, businesses, residents, and community groups.
For businesses, a BFBD can mean more customers, increased sales, happier employees, and more parking options for visitors. For residents, BFBDs help create healthier, safer, and more attractive neighborhoods. For local governments, they can help reduce congestion, improve public health, and help spur economic activity.
