R&T Portfolio: Multimodal Planning and Underserved Communities

"Strategies For Accelerating Multimodal Project Delivery cover."The goals of the planning for bicycle and pedestrian safety, connectivity, and mobility, including for underserved communities are twofold: (1) lower the number of pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities and serious injuries due to traffic crashes, and (2) improve the connectivity of the multimodal transportation system to give travelers better options. The program supports the needs of people with disabilities, rural communities, and the Nation at large with more holistic transportation planning. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) works with States and local partners to improve transportation connectivity, safety, and accessibility for all users.

Program Objectives:

  • Identify, develop, and share effective tools to integrate pedestrian and bicycle analysis into transportation planning and project development.
  • Research, develop, and share tools to support a connected, equitable, and safe surface transportation system.
  • Identify and promote strategies that support mobility options, equity, and access.
