Non-motorized Transportation Plan
Non-motorized transportation includes walking or using a wheelchair, bicycling, skating, and using pedicabs. The Non-motorized Transportation Plan, as part of the Total Mobility Plan, will serve as an update to the MPO’s Bikeway Plan of 2000 and as well as providing a plan now to address the needs of pedestrians, and other self-powered travelers. The Plan will be developed by:
- Identifying needed improvements for the non-motorized modes;
- Identifying areas for amenities to help create a human-scaled environment that encourages use of physically active modes;
- Prioritizing improvements and identifying funding opportunities
The resulting prioritized lists will guide the MPO in programming the $98 million that is set aside for non-motorized transportation over 25 years in the Framework Mobility Plan and will be incorporated into the Total Mobility Plan.
The lists can also guide local governments in the development of Capital Improvement Programs, and guide organizations applying for grants in the future, under such programs as Transportation Enhancement and Safe Routes to School.

This report explains a proposed method that would be used to determine which pedestrian projects and which bicycle projects will be at the top of the lists for funding. Actual project lists will be provided at a later date.

Bicycle Level of Service Evaluation on the Proposed Network: Level of Service (LOS) is a way of categorizing the existing conditions, according to how "bicycle-friendly" they are, with LOS A being extremely good and LOS F being extremely poor. The purpose is to show which segments need the most improvement.
