BFS 2019 Report Card Description
In each report card you will find:
- Successes and Suggestions based on survey data and feedback from state advocates and agencies. This section recognizes progress made and important steps that can be taken by the state to improve bicycling.
- Our 5 Bicycle Friendly Actions and whether each state has taken them. Each of the 5 Bicycle Friendly Actions is an action that the League of American Bicyclists believes EVERY state should take.
- Federal data indicators on bicycle use, safety, and federal funding used for biking and walking. Although not ideal, this data is the best data that is available nationwide for state-by-state comparisons of current conditions.
- Grades for each of the 5 categories of questions in our Bicycle Friendly State survey and each sub-category in our survey. These grades are meant to help people identify areas for improvement in their state. The underlying questions can be found in the Bicycle Friendly State survey.
These report cards cannot capture everything every state is doing and we welcome feedback that helps us support improvements in every state.
