Bicycling is good for business



LINK

quote:

Cities across the U.S. discover that good biking attracts great jobs and top talent to their communities.


quote:

Young people today drive significantly less than previous generations, according to a flurry of recent reports. Even Motor Trend magazine notes that young professionals flocking to cities today are less inclined to buy cars and “more likely to spend the money on smartphones, tablets, laptops and $2,000-plus bikes.” Annual miles traveled by car among 16- to 34-year olds dropped 23 percent from 2001 to 2009 according to a study from the “Frontier Group” think tank. The Federal Highway Administration found the miles traveled by drivers under 30 dropped from 21 percent to 14 percent of the total between 1995 and 2009. These young people represent the “creative class” talent pool that many companies covet. That’s why civic, business and political leaders in cities around the country are paying attention to their wishes for lively, livable places to work and play. That includes biking – for commuting and for recreation.


Get on board BR.

You know what else is good for attracting talent?

Less section 8 housing, ghettos, and violent crime rates.
Let's focus on those first

New Orleans has these same problems but seem to be doing just fine recruiting young talent.

It's really not very hard to bike around uptown FWIW. Been doing it for a while.

Oh, no doubt. I agree with you on this I was just trying to say that NOLA has a niche greater than BR to attract young talent that want to live down here.
