Abstract

In early 1983 York City Council and North Yorkshire County Council commissioned the Institute for Transport Studies to carry out a study of cycling in York. The terms of reference were to:

Include an origin and destination survey of current movements by trip purpose and an assessment of future demand, indicating the likely mode from which any transfer will occur;

Identify problem areas following discussions with various cycling groups and a study of accident statistics;

Take into consideration any previous decisions of the City Council for investigation;

Assess the appropriateness of the recommended standards for cycle facilities to a compact urban area;

Propose various solutions to problems where appropriate, assess the effect on other road users, and formulate a basic cycling plan for York.
