Event description

Description

A walk or bike audit is a planning tool used to assess transportation conditions along corridors, with an emphasis on walking and cycling. They can determine pedestrian or bicyclist safety issues, and identify problems using local knowledge and professional expertise. Walk and bike audits are used to gather data for School Travel Plan (STP) development, as well as other transportation planning processes.

This is a valuable workshop to attend if your community is developing or updating their STP, or is interested in assessing transportation safety to destinations such as transit stops, parks, libraries, retail/downtown areas, grocery stores, or other locations where people walk or bike.

At this workshop you will learn:

  • types of walk and bike audits;
  • how to lead an informal walk or bike audit in your community;
  • what resources and tools are available;
  • guidance on data collection, audit planning, public participation and results interpretation;
  • how walk and bike audits can create positive community change.

Attend if:

  • you want to improve transportation safety in your community;
  • your community is developing a school travel or other transportation plan;
  • your community has streets, roads, or corridors that could be more walkable or bikeable if safety issues are identified and addressed;
  • you want to learn a skill that can assist in community planning, land use and transportation.

All are welcome! Although instruction will focus on school travel corridors, this workshop will benefit anyone who wants to learn how to improve active transportation safety, regardless of the traveler or destination!

NOTE: During training, instructors will lead participants on a walk or bike audit at a nearby location that poses safety challenges to pedestrians and/or bicyclists. Please dress for the weather and be prepared to walk about one mile.

Attendees may request public domain continuing education units (CEUs).
