Student Creates 'Infographics' For Bicycle Commuting Information

Curious about bicycle commuting trends in the U.S.? A University of Oregon student created 'infographics' to answer your questions- and won a national transportation policy competition for his work.

The project was aimed at helping people make informed decisions about transportation safety and economic development. The graphics provide information such as the number of bike commuter per state, bicycle fatalities, government spending, and features comparison charts, all by hovering over the state you're interested in on a map.
