As the demand for walkable and bikeable communities and transportation choices increases in Kansas, we need the tools and training to effectively implement best practices with a focus on safety, convenience, fun, affordability and speed. Goals of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Program include increased connectivity of bicycle and pedestrian facilities; improved economic health of communities; increased accessible pedestrian facilities on public rights of way; increased physical activity; reduced pedestrian and cyclist fatalities and serious injuries; increased access to community destinations such as grocery stores, parks, healthcare, and jobs.

Strategies

Improve non-motorized data collection and analysis.
Identify and promote the use of best practices when planning and designing transportation facilities for non-motorized modes of transportation.
Improve network connectivity and operation of pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
Improve public awareness of non-motorized road users.
