Default Bike trail usage: Example Cedar Lake Trail, Minneapolis

Hi,

Cedar Lake trail https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cedar_Lake_Trail was the
first major rail trail in the USA to receive federal funding as a
"commuter trail"; it opened in 1995. It runs just over 4 miles into
downtown Minneapolis.

Looking at the usage figures
http://www.minneapolismn.gov/www/gro...msp-197773.pdf
(page 11) you find 2,500 to 3,000 daily users over the years (i.e. on
the order of 1,500 commuters going both ways).

Do you think those kind of daily numbers are a success or a failure?

Rolf
