DePaul study finds commuting via biking faster than public transit

In December, researchers at DePaul University’s Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development released good news for cyclists. Biking proves a faster commute than either public transit or Uber. Not only does traveling via bike result in a faster miles-per-hour speed in Chicago traffic, but many cyclists practice the Idaho stop, meaning they might slow and yield at an intersection but not stop altogether.

Steve Weber, a Chicago resident, shares his experience biking to work in Chicago, both as beginner and now as someone who bikes more frequently. Weber also noted this year’s mild winter has been good for bikers and his rule for following traffic stops.
