Greater Madison MPO receives Silver Bicycle Friendly Business award 

The League of American Bicyclists recently recognized the Greater Madison MPO with a Silver Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) award, earning it a place alongside 50 businesses in Wisconsin and 28 businesses in the Madison area contributing to the movement to build a more Bicycle Friendly America. 

The Greater Madison MPO is the third Wisconsin BFB in the Government category, all of which are in the Madison area.  

It encourages bicycling as a transportation option and publishes the Dane County Bicycle Map, provides the online Low-Stress Bike Route Finder, hosts the RoundTrip Greater Madison ride- and bike-buddy-matching platform, administers the Dane County Emergency Ride Home program, and requires all roadway projects selected for federal funding by the MPO to be Complete Streets. 

This award follows close on the heels of the MPO Policy Board’s May 3 adoption of an updated Complete Streets Policy, which guides investment in area roadway projects funded through the federal STGB-Urban program. 

Under long-standing MPO policy, all roadway projects selected for funding though this program must result in complete streets designed for safe use by all roadway users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, persons using adaptive mobility devices, transit riders, and users of private automobiles.
