CaitlinC's insight:

Boston Bikes is putting together a broad picture of cycling in Boston by analyzing data from a variety of sources. The Boston Public Health Commission is analyzing crash data from Boston Emergency Medical Services, Boston Police Department and local emergency departments.  Further, Boston Bikes confirmed ridership using information compiled by the League of American Bicyclists. Boston Bikes conducted multiple surveys with over 4,000 respondents.  Key findings can soon be found here once fully analyzed. Boston Bikes will continue to seek public input in the upcoming year to improve bike safety, education, and ridership.
