A Fun, Healthy, Affordable Way to Connect People and Places
Many Kansans are discovering that walking, bicycling, rolling and other forms of active transportation are fun and healthy ways to get around. For others, active transportation has long provided an essential need: an affordable way to get to work, school, transit, the store and other important destinations. The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) is committed to providing transportation options for you to get from place to place safely and conveniently no matter your age, your abilities, or your background. There is still work to be done. Join us as we plan a better future for active transportation in Kansas.

The Kansas Active Transportation Plan (ATP)
Imagine a future with greater choices for how you get around. Working closely with national and local experts in planning, design, and safety, KDOT is developing the state’s first Active Transportation Plan (ATP) in 25 years. The ATP will look at the needs of people who walk, cycle, use mobility assistance devices, scoot, and more. The plan will focus on how things can be improved through better policies, planning, design, and partnerships with other state agencies and local communities.

We Want to Hear from You
Whether you use active transportation regularly, rarely, or somewhere in between, your input and ideas are critical to developing this plan. Here’s how:

  • Attend an online info session to learn more and share your thoughts.
  • Respond to this quick survey   
  • Stay up to date by following us on the web and Facebook 
  • Share your story! <LINK COMING SOON> Tell us how and why you incorporate active transportation into your life.

In addition to gathering input from the general public, KDOT and its consultants are working closely with an internal Technical Advisory Committee and a Core Team of stakeholders from across the state, including government staff and officials, community members, healthcare professionals, transportation planners and designers, advocacy groups and many others.
