73% Feel Bicycle Pedestrian Facilities Important

82% Feel Bicycle Pedestrian Facilities are Important

According to the DVRPC 2005 PUBLIC OPINION SURVEY 48% of all respondents indicate that it is “very important’ to accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians in the transportation system with fairly consistent findings across all survey respondents by county of residence, gender, age, and level of education. Not surprisingly, residents of Philadelphia attach greater importance to this component of the transportation system than residents of other areas. 34% of all respondents indicate that it is “somewhat important”, 19% think it is “not very important”, and 8% think it is “not important at all”.

Note: not sure why the report adds up to 109% I believe that only 9% feel that bike/ped is not very important.
