Contents Notes
1. Introduction -- 2. Bicycling and walking in the United States today -- 3. Federal action plan -- 4. Action plans and programs at the state level -- 5. Action plans and programs at the local level -- 6. A vision of the future. The purpose of this report is to recommend a plan of action for achieving the Study goals of doubling the percentage of bicycling and walking trips, while decreasing by 10 percent the number of crash-related injuries and deaths. The action plans presented are comprehensive in scope, covering activities directed at increasing public awareness of the benefits of nonmotorized transportation, improving facilities to make bicycling and walking more viable and attractive transportation options, providing needed educational and law enforcement support, and "institutionalizing" bicycling and walking into the nation's transportation system.
