Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Study

A Study For the Nashville Region

The regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Study is intended to help establish a strategic vision for improving walking and bicycling opportunities in the greater Nashville region. That strategic vision fed into the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization's (MPO's) overall regional transportation plan and provide the basis by which future funding priorities of the MPO are established for bicycle and pedestrian accommodations within the Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner, Wilson, and Williamson counties, plus the cities of Spring Hill and Springfield.

Working with local governments, businesses, non-profit organizations, and the general public, the Nashville Area MPO conducted the Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Study as a mechanism to foster a better understanding of bicycle and pedestrian needs within the region. The Study provides guidance for policies, programs, and investments intended to maximize opportunities for greater walking and bicycling activity now and in the future within the greater Nashville region.
