Walking and bicycle transportation modes can complement the transportation network and yield desirable social, economic, environmental, and health benefits. Among the actions that should be considered to ensure the efficient use of existing street space are the appropriate provisions for bicycle and pedestrian facilities such as bicycle paths and exclusive lanes, pedestrian malls and other means of separating pedestrian and vehicular traffic, and secure and convenient storage areas for bicycles. This paper estimates that potential for travel by walking and bicycle modes and hypothesizes that this potential will continue to increase. The various options for pedestrian and bicycle facilities are described and examples are given. Pedestrian and bicycle provisions included in the transportation system management elements of the Tri-State and Delaware Valley regions are described. /Author/
