Active-Transportation-Toolbox

This toolbox promotes creating a high quality, connected, and active regional transportation network that inspires people to walk, bike, and take transit. It provides principles for active transportation networks that are equitable, safe, comfortable, and connected. It has a visual glossary of high quality/high comfort infrastructure, basic design advice and criteria, and references to the best available guidance that provides detailed direction. Local agencies should use this toolbox to learn about the designs of high-quality active transportation projects. These projects would be part of the complete corridor network or within their activity centers.1 Ultimately, they would be good candidates to receive MAG funding.
