Arkansans to receive new services, e-bikes, bike share, new parks
Arkansaans are getting the services of the e-bike and the bike-share services as part of the city’s commitment to its Vision Zero plan.
The city of about 11,000 people, a few hours north of New York City, is looking at building and expanding its bike share program, with a goal to be the largest in the country by 2020.
The City of New Orleans, a suburb of Baton Rouge, has been trying to improve its public transportation system for a while, and the Vision Zero program will be part of that effort.
The plan is to put more than 2,000 miles of new protected bike lanes in the next 10 years, and it is looking to add an additional 2,600 miles of bike lanes.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu, a Democrat who was in charge of transportation when the Vision Zeroes first came up, is touting the programs as part “of a bigger vision” that he hopes will make New Orleans a “tremendous city again.”
The goal is to make New Orleanians happy and more active, he said.
The new Vision Zero plans have been around for years and Landrieus said they have been the biggest challenges to implementing.
“It’s not like I’ve done it all,” he said at a city council meeting earlier this month.
“We’ve done the hard work.”
But there are a lot of things that need to be done.
And the city is facing a budget crisis and many areas need to get funding for new projects.
The Vision Zero effort started in New Orleans with a plan to put in 10,000 new bike lanes, but the funding wasn’t there.
Now, there is $5.5 million in funding, but it’s a pittance compared to what the city needs.
And it’s hard to put into effect new programs if the city has to go to court to get it.
There’s been a lot more focus on the bicycle as a way to get people to walk and ride, but there are still many obstacles to getting people to move.
The city says it has the right funding and it needs to do the right thing.
“I want to get the most people out of the car,” said Mayor Landrieun, who has been working to get more people to take the public transportation.
“But I also want to make sure we’re not getting people in and out of our streets who are not ready for bikes.”
So what I’m trying to do is have a vision where we’re all getting on bikes, not just cars, so we can be a city where we all get out of cars and into the community.
“Landrieu’s administration has also said that it has plans to build new parks, bicycle lanes and bike share facilities, and he’s trying to bring the programs to the people of New Orleans.
Landrieuf said the city plans to add about 600 miles of protected bike lane lanes this year, and about 500 miles of designated bike lanes by 2021.
The goal for the citywide bike share system is to be in its first year.
The mayor is right that the city could get more bike lanes if it had more money. “
I just want to put this on the radar screen,” he told me.
The mayor is right that the city could get more bike lanes if it had more money.
But he said that Vision Zero is also about improving the infrastructure, not about getting people out.
“We have to get out there and make sure our streets are safe,” Landrieuu said.
“That’s what I want to do.”
