Year:
2021
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Infrastructure, Safety, Sidewalk, Transit, Transportation
Description:
Final report available here: https://www.oldspokeshome.com/one-mobility-audit The Old North End (ONE) is Burlington’s most economically, ethnically, and socially diverse community. The historically working-class neighborhood is a vibrant collective of arts, food, small business, and community-centered services, and is home to much of Burlington’s lower-income and migrant populations. This neighborhood mobility audit by the Old Spokes Home (bike shop and non-profit) sought to identify transportation investments that will improve pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access for traditionally underserved residents within the ONE to area jobs and essential services. A survey of those residents helped the project team to understand residents’ specific experiences, needs and barriers. Recommendations are made to enhance walking, biking, and transit connections to area jobs and essential services (e.g., shopping, educational centers, medical care facilities, etc.) at a neighborhood level, as well as suggestions on how to involve and engage traditionally underserved populations in planning projects.

Description:
The three contiguous communities of Cambridge, Underhill, and Jericho are seeking to develop a comprehensive “alternative” transportation system (i.e. one that does not rely heavily on single-occupancy auto) to serve their residents. This area has come to be called the “Tri-Town” area. The purpose of this study is to examine the range of possibilities for accomplishing this including various modes and services, organizational and administrative structures, and funding. It is intended that the results be relevant not only to the Tri-Town area but also for other rural portions of the GMT region.
