A walkable, bikeable city is important for several reasons:
- Cities that are walkable are more attractive to new employers and new residents. They help spur economic growth
- Walkable cities are safer and healthier.
- Walkable, bicycle-friendly cities encourage less dependence on cars and help reduce carbon footprints
New Brunswick is working to make the city more walkable and bicycle-friendly. Enhanced crosswalks have been installed around town, bike lane construction is expected to start in 2012 through a project funded through Middlesex County and the NJTPA and local ordinances have been updated to provide for safer cycling throughout the city.
