Active transportation is human-powered transportation that engages people in healthy physical activity while they travel from place to place. People walking, bicycling, pushing strollers, using wheelchairs and other mobility devices, skateboarding, and rollerblading are all forms of active transportation. Additionally, active transportation is necessary to support public transit to allow for more accessibility within and among communities.


This plan is intended to identify needs, resources, and strategies to encourage and enhance bicycle,pedestrian, and transit travel within the Michiana region. The intent of the plan is not to secure funding for every project. Instead, the recommendations contained herein should be used as a guide for local jurisdictions in taking advantage of these opportunities.
