Abstract: In an effort to improve intermodal trips that include biking to Regional Rail in Delaware County, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) examined bicycle usage and openness to biking through in-person surveying and existing conditions analysis at three Regional Rail stations. These efforts were to better understand the habits and preferences of existing and potential bike-to-transit users, in order to identify and prioritize improvements that can be made to increase bike-to-transit trips. DVRPC worked with Delaware County to select three stations to include in the study: Swarthmore, Lansdowne, and Norwood. The findings inform strategies that will better accommodate and encourage current and future cyclists. These strategies include education and encouragement campaigns that are informed by the interest in or regularity with which riders bike to each station, as well as common attitudinal perspectives at each station, and infrastructure interventions.

Key Words: Biking, Transit, Surveys, Bike-to-transit trips
