Bicycle Pedestrian Technical Advisory Group

Duties and Responsibilities

BPTAG will advise the new Transportation Commission on active transportation-related matters, such as short-term and long-range pedestrian and bicycle planning, and compliance with local, regional and federal transportation regulations.

BPTAG will provide expertise and make recommendations on the implementation of the Mobility Master Plan including way finding, design, connectivity and encouragement for active transportation. BPTAG will also provide guidance on the reprioritization of pedestrian and bicycle projects as new networks are implemented.
