Complete, expand and connect networks of bicycle and pedestrian facilities, including supporting access to transit.

  1. Prioritize implementation of planned bicycle and pedestrian networks. Improve overall coordination of local and regional agency planning and implementation efforts. Evaluate whether these facilities are connected regionally and on a local scale to major employment, education, and recreation centers.
  2. Implement a roadway design project checklist that includes measures of pedestrian, bicycle, and transit (e.g. bus bay) accommodation.v
  3. Work regionally to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists.
  4. Consider regional adoption of Transit, Pedestrian, and Biking programs that aim to improve access to transit.
