LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Council President Jim King told his Democratic colleagues on Thursday that he doesn’t envision any bicycle registration program in Louisville charging money.
At the meeting of the council’s majority caucus, King reiterated what he recently told WDRB’s Valerie Chinn. He wants data on bike use to be able to identify the need for more bike lanes, for instance.
Councilman Tom Owen – who’s also an avid cyclist – said during the meeting that bike lanes are an important safety feature that make roads safer for cars and cyclists.
A number of dedicated bike lanes have opened in recent months, prompting the council to review how the city is spending money on the lanes.
Metro government is currently conducting a bike study. It’s expected to be complete next month.
