Pedestrians and Bicyclists

Pedestrians and cyclists make up a growing percentage of roadway fatalities, so we work to make sure transportation systems take their needs and abilities into account.

MRIGlobal is a leader in developing design guidance to accommodate the safety, operations, and comfort of pedestrians and bicycles. We work with highway agencies to address the increasing exposure of vulnerable road users to other modes of traffic through the design of safer facilities for walkers, bikers, children, people with disabilities, and senior citizens. We develop these solutions without reducing efficiency and quality of service for motor vehicles.

PAST PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLE PROJECTS

MRIGlobal’s work in the area of bicycles and pedestrians includes:

Our Staff

We don’t just research pedestrian and bicycle safety, we live it. Our research is motivated by our own enjoyment of active transportation within our communities and getting home safely.

MRIGlobal’s staff participate in the Pedestrian and Bicycle committees at the Transportation Research Board’s annual conference each year to help shape the direction of research in these fields. Our staff are on the cutting edge of estimating pedestrian and bicycle trips, designing facilities that help pedestrians and cyclists feel safe and secure, and separating vehicles from vulnerable road users to minimize the potential for collision.
