Prioritizing Safety Through Conducting Walkability & Bikeability Assessments
Sep 22, 2022
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
Do you want to identify barriers that make it difficult for people in your community of all ages and abilities to walk? Conducting a walk or bike assessment is a great way to not only identify observations about physical conditions and feelings of comfort and safety, but also to provide a different mindset and view of walking and bicycling for participants who don’t or infrequently walk or ride in your community. This session will teach you how to coordinate your own walk or bike assessment and provide you with tips, tools, and resources for not only planning your event but setting the stage for further action to help address the barriers you identify. The NJ Safe Routes Academy, sponsored by the NJ Department of Transportation, features free online sessions to help participants make their communities more walk- and bike-friendly for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. To learn more about all of the sessions, visit the NJ Safe Routes Academy website.
