Bicylists and Pedestrians and Skaters Please Take the America Bikes Coalition Survey

roadskater's picture

This post is based on an announcement from the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) passed along by a local Bicycling in Greensboro representative to the North Carolina Active Transportation Association. I added some links and explanations below.

Please go to the link below now (at least before Oct 1) and complete the survey. Not all of it is aimed at us of course:

The current federal transportation program, which funds many bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs, expires in September 2009. Bicycle and pedestrian groups, led by the America Bikes Coalition, are determining what we want out of the next bill, and how we will get it. We need your help and advice so thank you for taking this survey.

LINKS AND EXPLANATIONS

SRTS = Safe Routes To School

"Safe Routes to School is an international movement that has taken hold in communities throughout the United States.  The concept is to increase the number of children who walk or bicycle to school by funding projects that remove the barriers that currently prevent them from doing so.  Those barriers include lack of infrastructure, unsafe infrastructure, lack of programs that promote walking and bicycling through education/encouragement programs aimed at children, parents, and the community."

Complete Streets =

"The streets of our cities and towns ought to be for everyone, whether young or old, motorist or bicyclist, walker or wheelchair user, bus rider or shopkeeper. But too many of our streets are designed only for speeding cars, or worse, creeping traffic jams. They’re unsafe for people on foot or bike — and unpleasant for everybody.

Now, in communities across the country, a movement is growing to complete the streets. States, cities and towns are asking their planners, engineers and designers to build road networks that welcome all citizens."
