VHB's Orlando team earned third place at the City of Orlando's 2024 Bike to Work Day event, pedaling from the SoDo area of Orlando to City Hall Plaza. This annual celebration, sponsored by VHB, is an opportunity to encourage commuters from across Orlando and Central Florida to utilize active transportation and connect with organizations supporting a sustainable transportation future, including Rethink Your Commute, Bike Walk Central Florida, and the Orlando Bike Coalition.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer joined more than a dozen VHBers and more than 200 participants to pedal into work along a four-mile path along VHB’s Downtown Orlando Urban Trail project, followed by a Bike to Work Celebration for downtown workers to learn more about the city’s bike projects and connect to local organizations. E-bikes were available for participants in the group bike ride who did not own a bike.

“Bike to Work Day is a signature event for VHB Orlando,” said Marc Hustad, PE, Orlando Managing Director. “We share a goal with the City of Orlando to enhance our community via smart community planning that is safe, sustainable, and resilient. Bicycling checks all those boxes and more.”

VHB collaborates with clients to enhance mobility for safe, active transportation options via pedestrians, cyclists, and wheelchair and micromobility users. Some of our recent bike-friendly local mobility projects include Orange County Vision Zero Action Plan, Raleigh Street Improvements, Creative Village & Luminary Green Park, and the Downtown Orlando Urban Trail Gap & Extension.

The VHB Orlando office was recognized for being a 2023 Silver Bike Friendly Business by League of American Bicyclists.
