Use of the “Coronapistes” temporary bicycle paths in Paris

As part of the deconfinement plan initiated on May 11, 2020 following the health crisis caused by the

Covid-19 pandemic, the City of Paris has put in place a series measures to prevent the spread of the virus. In this context, the use of bicycles has been strongly encouraged in the capital: temporary bicycle paths known as “Coronapistes” have been set up on three major routes, following the trajectory of lines 1, 4 and 13 of the metro, or lines A and B of the RER, making it possible to cross the city from North to South, from West to East and in part from North-West to South-West. Complementary tracks have been developed by several municipalities in the Greater Paris area, encouraging people living or working in the suburbs to cycle to and from Paris.

Three months after the end of the confinement, the question arose as to the evaluation of these facilities and the possibility of their perpetuation in the public space. Thus, this study aimed to present the use made of the paths by collecting the appreciation of the Coronapists by their users and the opinions expressed by them in terms of safety, comfort and usefulness of these new cycle paths. The method developed assessed, in particular, the continuity of the infrastructure between Paris intramurals and the suburbs, the share of the use of these paths linked to inter-urban journeys, as well as their general impact in encouraging people to cycle during the deconfinement period and in the long term.
