Bike lanes across the United States

The six cities leading the nation are Austin, Chicago, Memphis, Portland, San Francisco and Washington, DC. Representatives met in New York City to share the ideas that are working for them. What is needed in addition to the bike lanes is the infrastructure of convenient bike parking garages, bike-sharing stations and workplace showering facilities.
Green lanes are engineered for safety, efficiency and travel ease for all street users of all ages. They are separated from sidewalks and some are painted green. While inspired by European cities' decades of experience, they are unique for American streets. Other names for them are cycle tracks, buffered bike lanes, traffic-separated bike lanes, and protected bike lanes. They are meant to be safe, convenient and comfortable biking routes.
