Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
Creating a Sustainable Transportation Network
With close to half of all trips in the United States consisting of three miles or less, the Memphis MPO recognizes that there are great opportunities to improve bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the region to accommodate such travel. To aid in this process, the Memphis MPO's Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan is intended to identify opportunities for enhancing bicycle and pedestrian travel.
2014 Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
The intent of the Plan is not to secure funding for every project. Instead, the recommendations should be used as a guide for local jurisdictions in taking advantage of such opportunities. The Plan relies on four main goals to identify methods for improving bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure including Safety, Connectivity, Accessibility and Mode Shift.
These goals were used to perform a comprehensive analysis which resulted in a composite map displaying levels of corridor need to improve bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the Memphis MPO region. The Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan of the Memphis MPO was adopted by the Transportation Policy Board on November 20, 2014.

Chapter 4: Implementation and Funding
MPO planners have prepared jurisdiction reports to serve as accompanying documents to the Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. The reports have been provided to the respective municipal or county member of the MPO as a planning aid and are available to members of the public interested in viewing the Plan's recommendations specific to their community. Each report contains brief context on the local jurisdiction, network composite score maps, as well as recommended policies and projects.
