Sustainable Mode Education, Infrastructure, and Accessibility

Expand education, infrastructure, and accessibility to promote walking and bicycling and other active modes of transportation.


Education leads to broader acceptance of active modes of transportation through the following strategies.

  • Expand education to inform the general public on existing or future opportunities to safely walk or bike for their commute or in their neighborhood.
  • Expand infrastructure and accessibility to provide new pathways for active transportation users to utilize the transportation network.
  • Expand active mode accessibility for other benefits beyond reduced vehicle parking demand, including improvements in potential traffic safety, air quality, and personal health.
