Bicycling and Walking in Virginia
Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Program
The Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) Bicycle and Pedestrian Program began providing planning assistance to state and local transportation planners in the late 1970s.
At VDOT, the program plays a leadership role in advancing bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Program is part of VDOT’s Transportation and Mobility Planning Division in the Multimodal Section, which also includes VDOT's Park and Ride and Safe Routes to School Programs. The Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Planner oversees and coordinates intradepartmental efforts to shape bicycle and walking policies and practices and to ensure statewide consistency.
