The Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP)

Federal Highway Administration


SAFEATEA-LU Section 1807 established the NTPP. This program is providing 25 million dollars each to four communities--Columbia, MO; Marin County, CA; Minneapolis Area, MN; Sheboygan County, WI--to demonstrate how improved walking and bicycling networks can increase rates of walking and bicycling. FHWA is required to report on the results of the NTPP. An Interim Report was submitted to Congress in January 2008. A Final Report is due September 30, 2010. In order to properly evaluate the infrastructure improvements the Final Report will likely be submitted in fall of 2011. Outcome measures in the Final Report will include information concerning changes in: 1) vehicle and transit use; 2) rates of walking and bicycling; and 3) health and environmental measures
