Bike Initiatives

The Office of Advanced Planning works across Metro departments and with community partners to plan programs and provide resources to encourage alternative transportation and biking in Louisville.

A few of these initiatives/projects include:

CycLOUvia–an open streets program that repurposes busy corridors by temporarily replacing traditional vehicular traffic with pedestrian traffic. Streets become paved parks where people of all ages, abilities, and socio-economic backgrounds can come to improve their mental, physical, and emotional health. CycLOUvia events have been held on Frankfort Avenue, Bardstown Road, West Broadway and Goss Avenue-Logan Street-Shelby Street. 

Louisville Loop--an estimated 100-mile trail system that will eventually encircle the city and link existing and new parks and neighborhoods to civic attractions, transportation alternative and recreation opportunities. 

LouVelo--an innovative transportation program, ideal for short distance point-to-point trips providing users the ability to pick up a bicycle at any self-serve bike-station and return it to any other bike station located within the system's service area.
