Active Transportation

Active Transportation, otherwise referred to as non-motorized transportation, includes facilities that make it easier to travel by walking and bicycling. Included in this are bikeways (Class I, II, III), sidewalks, boardwalks and multiuse paths. It also includes categories often considered part of 'liveable communities' such as traffic control devices that make it easier for bicyclists and pedestrians and streetscape improvements like street trees, benches and other 'street furniture.'

SLOCOG has consistently taken a intermodal approach to transportation throughout our region. A recent state law and national movement for 'complete streets' concepts validate this multimodal approach. Providing facilities for all users (bicyclists, pedestrians, transit users, etc.) provides many benefits to the region: safety, health, reduction in congestion and vehicle generated emissions and a vital active community core.

Volunteer Resources

SLOCOG encourages volunteer groups to assist with data collection by counting people walking and on bikes, and recommending wayfinding signage at regional locations. Contact John DiNunzio, SLOCOG Transportation Planner at for details or click below to learn more.
