Bicycle & Pedestrian Network

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 completed an update to the Village's 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.

North Connector Bike Path Feasibility Study

The Village has completed the North Connector Bike Path Feasibility Study to determine the feasibility of constructing a path connection between the Lisle Metra station and the IL Route 53 & Park Boulevard intersection.

While there may be alternative routes to cross Warrenville Road and I‐88, the Village has focused this feasibility study on an alignment that crosses I‐88 and Warrenville Road along the East Branch DuPage River. This alignment was identified as the preferred/priority route for connecting to the IL Route 53 & Park Boulevard intersection in the Village’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

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.
