The city continuously looks to improve infrastructure to aid in safe transportation routes for bicyclists and pedestrians. Throughout the month of September, city staff and volunteers will be conducting the annual bicycle and pedestrian count. These counts help measure changes in the number of people biking and walking and to also determine whether improvements are needed or should be prioritized at the count sites. For more information about the count, visit www.HarrisonburgVA.gov/bicycle-pedestrian-count

The city wants to hear from YOU! What transportation infrastructure improvements in the city have helped you, your business or organization?

What is NOT helping business grow is that we have no decent public transportation to and from the city. We once had train depots, and then we had the Greyhound stations, now, we have nothing. Harrisonburg is a hard sell for anyone doing business, coming to school or a convention here, or for my business to grow because there is no way to get to DC or Richmond except to drive. The city is going to have to address this soon. There was a movement to get Megabus to stop here. If there are to be improvements to the Port Road/I81 intersection, why not add a stopping place for passengers to get off and on a Megabus or some other company bus, just so we can get to DC or Richmond.

The bike lane are welcome, but the absence of sidewalks bordering commercial establishments makes getting around the city unpleasant and dangerous.
