Chart of the Day: Perceived Comfort for Varying Bike Facilities

This is a chart from a recent study out of Portland State University about measuring perceived comfort for different types of bicycle facilities.


You can read the report and the methodology here, but this basically says that more people think they feel more comfortable in more protected bike infrastructure.

(One other interesting result were that age didn’t have much effect on perceived comfort.)
