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.
