The pedestrian and bicycling experience is important for communities as more emphasis is placed on alternative modes of transportation. Encouraging bicycling and walking reduces traffic and parking congestion, lowers pollutants, and improves health.
Get residents involved in determining safe bike and walking routes and solving local traffic problems that conflict with both bikes and pedestrians. The guide The Tactical Urbanists Guide to Materials and Design provides novel and low-tech information about improving safety and experiences for both pedestrians and bicyclists. It includes guidance about design, materials, and processes for both volunteer and municipal-led projects.
