Bicycling and Walking in Virginia

Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Program

Bicycle and Pedestrian Program logo

Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) Bicycle and Pedestrian Program has provided planning assistance to state and local transportation planners since it was established in the late 1970s. At VDOT, the program plays a leadership role in advancing bicycle and pedestrian accommodations throughout Virginia.

The program is within the Transportation and Mobility Planning Division and part of the Multimodal Section which includes the Park and Ride and Safe Routes to School programs. The Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Planner oversees and coordinates intradepartmental and interagency efforts to shape bicycle and walking policies and practices and to ensure statewide consistency with the Commonwealth Transportation Board's 2004 Policy for Integrating Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodations.
