Northern Oklahoma Regional Transportation Planning Organization

Active Transportation Plan

 

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced on Thursday it is working with local and national experts in developing the state’s first Active Transportation Plan. The ATP will examine the needs of people who walk, bike, use wheelchairs, mobility scooters, pedal, electric scooters, electric bikes, skateboards, and more. The ATP will focus on how active transportation can be improved through better policies, planning, design, and partnerships with other state agencies and local communities. Consisting of sidewalks, bikeways, multi-use trails, and other infrastructure, an active transportation system provides and promotes health and safety for users benefiting the environment and the economy. Increased access to multimodal transportation makes Oklahoma a better place to live, work, and visit. The Oklahoma Active Transportation Plan (ATP) will focus on: Safety and Comfort, Equity, Connectivity, Public Health, and Environmental Improvements. For more information, visit

Your voice is essential in this process! ODOT is working to develop an Active Transportation Plan for all Oklahoma residents and visitors, and is wanting to hear from our community members in NORTPO – you, your friends, families, children, and neighbors, along with business owners and employees. ODOT says public input and ideas are critical to developing the plan and the department encourages state residents to get involved by participating in the online opinion survey available through March 1 and a series of virtual public workshops available Jan. 23-26. You can provide your input through the online survey linked below and also join for their highly interactive virtual public workshops. Input will be shared to gain additional feedback from meeting regularly with a Technical Advisory Committee of ODOT Staff and an Active Transportation Committee of stakeholders from across the state. The final plan will be a policy document for the department’s staff and local officials to use and will include Oklahoma’s vision, goals, and recommendations.
