Important survey for Austin Bicycle Master Plan and new Urban Trails Plan

Folks,

The City of Austin wants your input on the first updates to the City of Austin Bicycle Master Plan since 2009, and on adoption of the City’s first Urban Trails Plan. These plans will help us achieve a connected and protected active transportation network and increase opportunities for people to safely bike around town, regardless of age or bicycling ability.

To help make sure these planning efforts reflect the goals and priorities of community members, the City has created an online survey to gather important input about bicycling experiences and preferences. Please take a few minutes now and complete the survey.

You can also visit the project’s website to learn more about the innovative strategies being explored to create a connected and protected network, including the use of cycle tracks – on-street bicycle lanes that are physically protected from motor traffic and separate from sidewalks, and urban trails – shared use paths used by bicyclists, walkers and runners for both recreation and transportation purposes.

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn more and weigh in with your input at public events on the evenings of November 12, 13 and 14. In the meantime, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to complete the survey and make sure “Your Path to Austin” reflects your views!

Take the survey now!

Please send this information on to others you think would be interested!
