As a key part of the Regional Transportation Plan, the Pedestrian and Cycling Master Plan (PCMP) envisions the Capital Region as a truly livable and environmentally sustainable community, where walking and cycling are key components of an innovative and integrated transportation system.
The PCMP focuses on a collaborative approach to implementing the five E’s of sustainable transportation (Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement and Evaluation) in both rural and urban communities. The plan identified a series of infrastructure investments and supportive programming to aid in achieving a regional mode share of 15% each for pedestrians and cyclists - with 25% in densely populated areas - by 2038.
