Bikeway Inventory System (BIS)

The BIS is a geodatabase containing datasets for bicycle facilities in the Chicago metropolitan area. The BIS contains separate feature classes for each identified bikeway plan (or plan with a bikeway component) within the seven-county area. These plans have been developed and adopted by local governments, sub-regional Councils of Mayors, Counties, and, in conjunction with all the region’s stakeholders, by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (The Regional Greenways and Trails Plan). The datasets, functions, and processes described herein represent the current state of our data and of the GIS system we use to analyze, map – and more broadly – communicate and coordinate bike planning efforts throughout northeastern Illinois. The BIS is continually maintained at CMAP, and updates are posted periodically on this site. Latest update: January 2022.
