Why Communities & States Need Bicycle and Pedestrian Staff

League of American Bicyclists (LAB), Alliance for Bicycling and Walking

Bicycle and pedestrian program managers are common in U.S. cities and, along with other transportation planners and bicycling advocates, are a critical part of creating a bicycle‐friendly community. Staff help communities plan for and respond to the needs of cyclists and pedestrians.

An analysis of 40 of the largest U.S. cities shows that cities with bicycle and pedestrian staff have higher levels of bicycling than the cities without staff. Cities with larger staff — both in count and per capita — have higher levels of bicycling than cities with smaller staffs.
