Bike and Pedestrian Issues in Transportation Planning

Date: September 28th, 1pm - 3pm


This workshop will describe what the state can do to support and encourage walking and bicycling as transportation modes. The first part of the workshop will cover key trends of pedestrian and bicycle activity across California. It will also include the perspective of the road users, and how safety and security considerations affect walking. The second part of the workshop will focus on strategies that Caltrans in particular can pursue towards achieving walking and bicycling goals. The panelists will describe the role of pedestrian and bicycle master plans in supporting walking and bicycling, along with road safety management strategies for pedestrians and bicyclists.
