A Bicycle or Pedestrian Master Plan is a formal transportation and/or land-use plans to improve conditions and supports for walking and bicycling. They usually include planned routes and paths for bicycles and pedestrian us and provide guidance on facility designs. The Master Plans also establish policies to support safe use of these routes and facilities. The goals of this study were to: 1) develop a coding tool to analyze bike/ped plans at sites across the United States, 2)code a representative sample of state, regional, and local plans and 3) compare and contrast results to determine best practices.
