Charlotte aspires to be bike friendly, but it’s a bumpy road ahead (WFAE Charlotte Talks)

Charlotte is pedaling towards a more bike-friendly future.

While about three-quarters of Charlotte residents commuted by car pre-pandemic, the city aims to have 50% of residents’ trips made through “walking, cycling and transit” by 2040.

That’s according to the first draft of the city’s Strategic Mobility Plan, released on May 20. Aspiring to improve the quality and quantity of public transit in Charlotte, among other goals, the plan proposes 173 miles of bikeways.

Shannon Binns joins Mike Collins and other guests to discuss what this means for Charlotte.
