Our transportation choices impact our employment, our finances, the health of our neighborhood and our personal health. uGO is an initiative to help you make good decisions about how you get from A to B by prioritizing health, safety, access and choice.

Safety

A pedestrian struck by a vehicle going 20 MPH has a 9 in 10 chance of avoiding serious injury or death.

A pedestrian struck by a vehicle going 40 MPH has a 2 in 10 chance of avoiding serious injury or death.

Between 2010 and 2014, there were over 1,580 automobile crashes in University Circle. 80 of them involved bicyclists and pedestrians.

A person can reduce his or her chance of being in a crash by more than 90% by taking public transit as opposed to commuting by car.

Health

Every mile walked or biked instead of driven by car cuts out 0.4 kg of CO2.

Cycling 15 minutes to work, four days a week reduces the average American’s carbon footprint by about 5%.

Walking briskly for 20 minutes every day can add up to 7 years to your life.

The average person loses 13 lbs. in the first year of commuting by bike.

Access

American Community Survey estimates indicate that 25% of City of Cleveland households do not have a car.

The average annual cost of a bicycle is $308. That’s nearly 98% less than the year expenses of an average car, $13,646.

During rush hour, cyclists are up to 50% faster than the average car.
