dc.description.abstractBicycle transportation is an important mode for an integrated transportation system. With more federal funding available and an interest in increasing the bicycle mode share, it is necessary to understand ways to efficiently incorporate the bicycle mode into transportation planning. This thesis formulates and solves a mathematical program that optimizes the location of bike routes and bike lane additions from an existing urban road network. Trip distance and bicycle level of service are considered when creating bike routes that connect origin-destination pairs. A case study uses data from the Baltimore Service Level Evaluation from 2003 to examine an area in Baltimore, which displays the mechanics of the model.en_US
