Bike and Pedestrian Planning
Purpose
The Pedestrian & Bikeways Committee is responsible for the implementation of that portion of the transportation program applicable to bicycling and pedestrians; coordinates and promotes bicycle and pedestrian facility plans, safety programs and regulations in the Toledo Metropolitan Area.

Activities
Activities of the committee include developing an inventory of both pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the region, preparing the pedestrian and bike components of the Regional Transportation Plan, and working with area stakeholders towards developing needed programs and projects. The committee promotes alternative forms of transportation through the annual events such as Bike Month. The committee also publishes maps and information (see RESOURCES below).

Meetings of the committee are open to the public, and new members are welcome. Contact Lance Dasher at 419-241-9155 ext. 1115 or click here to e-mail questions or comments.
