MAG's Active Transportation program plans for the improvement and construction of sidewalks, bikeways, and off-street paths. These plans include activities that inform the region about the benefits of biking and walking, and the important connections to transit.

  • Active Transportation Committee

    The MAG Active Transportation Committee is composed of representatives from MAG member agencies, Valley Metro and the Coalition of Arizona Bicyclists as well as members of the landscape architecture and public health community. The committee annually recommends projects for funding, including through the MAG Design Assistance Program and the MAG Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans and First Time Updates program. The committee focuses on meaningful implementation by recommending bicycle and pedestrian projects for funding as well as activities to inform the region about the benefits of biking and walking—and the importance of connections to transit—to foster mobility through a regionally-significant active transportation system.
  • MAG Bicycle Count Project

    In 2013, MAG hired ChenRyan Associates to conduct a region-wide bicycle count. The consultant worked with MAG member agencies to select a count methodology and determine which sites would be counted. The counts were conducted in October and November of 2013. 44 sites were counted using pneumatic tube technology, allowing continuous 24-hour counts over two week periods. 84 sites were counted manually using consultant staff to perform counts during weekday afternoon peak travel periods (4pm-6pm) and weekend morning peak travel periods (10am-12pm).

  • MAG Regional Bikeways Print Map

    MAG, in coordination with its member agencies, publishes a printed bike map every three to five years. The current edition is the 2015 MAG Bikeways Map, available in printed form for free from MAG (call 602-254-6300), local agencies, and many local bike shops. You can download the PDF version here using the link above.

  • MAG Regional Bikeways Online Map

    Additionally, MAG provides an online version of the bikeways map, which is compatible with mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The online map is updated by MAG more frequently than the printed map, showing new bikeways constructed since the printed map was published, and will soon be adding video and photo components.

  • MAG Transportation Alternative Applications

    In coordination with its members, MAG has developed goals and objectives for the MAG TA program, specific eligible activities for the MAG TA program and a multi-disciplined evaluation team for infrastructure TA projects.
