Active Transportation Planning
Active Transportation Planning seeks to make it safer, more comfortable, and more convenient for everyone to walk and bike by identifying needs and priorities for future investments. When more people are able and encouraged to walk or bike for short trips and to access transit, our communities experience improved air quality, health benefits, social equity, quality of life, and economic vitality.
