Why are motorcycles not included as an alternative mode?
There are a number of reasons for this.
o First, a primary goal of the program is to promote bus, carpool, vanpool, bicycling, and walking to remove drive-alone trips. A motorcycle can qualify as a carpool if more than one person is riding the same cycle.
o A second goal of the program is to encourage commuting methods that increase roadway capacity. Even given the relative size of a motorcycle to a car, there is still an issue of the number of vehicles using our county’s roadways. We believe that the best way to encourage people to use fewer vehicles overall is to encourage methods that promote personal or community connections, such as riding the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, biking, or walking.
