The Village of Lisle strives to provide a network of convenient and safe bicycle routes and walking paths in the community to encourage bicycling and walking as both a form of exercise and an alternative mode of transportation.
The Village also seeks to coordinate with DuPage County and surrounding communities to facilitate and implement a continuous bicycle and pedestrian network.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan Update
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee has begun work to complete an update the Village Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
A bicycle and pedestrian plan provides a detailed action plan for potential improvements to biking, walking, and transit in the Village. Additionally, a bicycle and pedestrian study places strong emphasis on creating safe connections to important destinations in the Village, with particular emphasis on access to various business corridors, downtowns, local parks, and schools.
Bike to Metra Station
For many commuters, riding a bicycle to the Metra Station is feasible and offers great benefits. Bike racks are located near the train station on the north and south sides of the tracks. Additional racks are located in the commuter parking lot, south of the tracks, just west of the station.
Bicyclists can also use a combination of biking and local bus Pace bus routes to commute to the Metra Station. All Pace buses offer accommodations for transport of bicycles. For more information on local Pace bus routes, view the Pace Suburban Bus Service website or use the RTA Trip Planner to plan your next trip using multiple modes of transit.
DuPage County contains approximately 191 miles of regional bikeways and trails, with an additional 107 miles proposed as part of the DuPage County Bikeway Map. For more information on DuPage County’s regional bikeways and trails, view the DuPage County website.
Illinois Bike Transportation Plan
In 2014, the State of Illinois approved the Illinois Bike Transportation Plan as a pathway to improving bicycling in Illinois and developing a safe, efficient, multi-modal transportation system.
