The purpose of this project is to assist in identifying infrastructure and other resource improvements to create a better experience when biking to campus, encouraging more students and employees to bike to campus. This will involve designing ways to collect data, capturing that data, and analyzing it in partnership with CPO & TAPs.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is currently working on the Central City in Motion plan, which will include investing in improvements to
the Central City transportation system. The results of this data analysis will be used to help advocate for transportation system improvements that
benefit the PSU community.
PSU’s annual commuter survey helps to capture data on transportation modes used for travel to campus, but it does not currently capture detailed
information on the habits, behaviors, or preferences of those arriving to campus by bike or those who would like to bike. There is a strong support
system for cyclists at PSU through the Bike Hub, but there is no centralized way to capture the data desired by this project.
This project aligns with TAPS, CPO, and PBOT’s mission to create safe, strategic, and sustainable transportation options in the Central City, at the PSU
campus, and for the PSU community. In addition, this work will contribute to and feed into overall transportation data captured by CPO and TAPs for use
in future decision-making, allocation of resources, educational campaigns, and more.
