MDOT logoMichigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to assist in an expanded economic impact study of bicycling in Michigan. 

The study will occur in two phases, beginning in January 2013. Phase One will:

"research and quantify the extent of economic impacts bicycling has on a community and the state as a whole. Findings will be used independently by business owners, perspective business owners, or by local, regional and state government decision makers and planners to measure, evaluate and track over time, the extent to which local, regional and statewide economic and community benefits have been influenced by bicycling or bicycle infrastructure. Collect and evaluate baseline economic data statewide, and develop a statewide summary of this information along with case studies in at least five communities or regions statewide based on the economic impact measurements to be developed in Phase One. These measures and case studies will be developed by the consultant and approved by MDOT. The consultant may also exclude select categories with justification and approval by MDOT. The selected communities or regions should be diverse and attempt to serve as a representative sample of the state as a whole."
