UNC Charlotte Doctoral Student Uses Strava To Map Bicycling Routes In Charlotte

UNC Charlotte doctoral student, Zijing Lin, figured out the routes Charlotte bicyclists take by using data from Strava, a social cycling app. Her work led to collaborating with North Carolina DOT on suggestions for cycling infrastructure: greenways, bike lanes and lights. Lin’s project is part of UNC Charlotte’s Center for Advanced Multimodal Mobility Solutions and Education (CAMMSE),  a consortium of five universities led by UNC Charlotte. 

Informed by CAMMSE research, faculty from UNC Charlotte and its CAMMSE partners have taught scores of undergraduate and graduate students and introduced cutting-edge research to the next generation of transportation engineers.
