  1. DNV OCP monitoring indicators for transportation targets
    • need a breakdown specifically for for cycling
    • some factors to consider in measuring how the goals are as follows:
      • mode share;
      • km of bike lanes and greenways;
      • transportation spending;
      • how many gaps have been closed
      • % of bike network completed separated, signed bike lanes and sharrow lanes
      • safe route to schools including connections to bike outes
    • counters are needed – none in DNV
    • these indicators would be good for all municipalities
