Non-motorized Transportation Plan
A Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
Adopted by CORE MPO on October 29, 2014

Non-motorized transportation includes walking or using a wheelchair, bicycling, and using pedicabs. This plan covers the CORE MPO planning area, which includes all of the area inside of Chatham County, GA, and its municipalities, as well as small portions of Effingham County and Bryan County, including Richmond Hill.

The Plan has been developed by:

  • Identifying needed pedestrian and bicycle improvements;
  • Prioritizing improvements

The resulting prioritized lists guide the MPO in allocating a portion of its federal funding to advance pedestrian and bicycle transportation.

The Non-motorized Transportation Plan 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 Alternatives.
