Putting Active Transportation Performance Measures into Practice

In transportation planning, funding, forecasting, and political backing often rely on quantitative evidence of need and potential for improvement. While data collection for vehicles is robust and often required, walking and bicycling are underrepresented. To effectively track and advocate for active transportation infrastructure and programs, having a set of performance measures to enable comprehensive evaluations of walking and biking projects based on quantitative data is essential. Active transportation performance measures demonstrate the value of pedestrian and bicycle projects; track the success of programs, policies and facilities; inform future investments; comply with funding requirements; produce a better environment; provide information to stakeholders; and, capture the value of new and innovative datasets and data collection methods.
