Bicycling and Walking
Walking and bicycling are good for our bodies, our environment, and our communities—plus they’re just plain fun! Our transportation system should better support walking and bicycling, ensuring that more people have opportunities to walk and bike safely and conveniently.
Minnesota’s current land use is often spread out and caters mostly to cars. Basic infrastructure like sidewalks, bikeways, and bicycle parking can be sporadic or missing altogether. Many roads have so many lanes of fast-moving traffic that it’s impossible for bicyclists and pedestrians to share the road—or even safely cross the street.
We’re working to change this.
Transit for Livable Communities works to make Minnesota’s streets and sidewalks safe for bicyclists and pedestrians. We partner with advocates, policymakers, and elected officials to advocate for innovative policy and planning changes. You can be a part of this work by taking action today.
Bike Walk Twin Cities. Funded through the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot program and administered by Transit for Livable Communities, Bike Walk Twin Cities works to increase bicycling and walking, and decrease driving in Minneapolis and surrounding communities.
Complete Streets means that our streets are planned to be safe and accessible for pedestrians, transit riders, bicyclists, and drivers -- all users, regardless of age or ability. Transit for Livable Communities worked with a statewide coalition to pass a strong complete streets policy in 2010.
