Defining the Relationship between Bicycle Infrastructure and Gentrification

October 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

Although research has not confirmed a causal relationship between bicycle infrastructure and gentrification, there are cases that show a directly link. Toole Design is working with two clients on research projects exploring this relationship. In this webinar, Toole will introduce the connection between bike lanes and trails and gentrification by highlighting foundational research. Oregon Metro and the Ohio Department of Health will then discuss their projects and how the agencies have used/will use the findings. With Metro, Toole examined the literature around bike trails and displacement, including mitigation and approaches to avoid negative impacts of gentrification, specifically the displacement of Black and brown and low-income communities. With the ODH, Toole analyzed how demographic indicators of gentrification and property values changed with the installation of bike lanes. More information.
