Active Transportation

What is Active Transportation?

Active transportation is human-powered mobility, including:
  • Biking
  • Walking 
  • Wheelchair use
  • Skating and Scootering

CAMPO considers impacts on these Active Transportation modes as part of our planning processes and activities.  Active Transportation plays an integral role in many people's daily lives, contributes to a reduction in fuel emissions, and improves quality of life.

The Capital Area Active Transportation Plan will act as a guide and resource to improve safety, connectivity, access, and mobility for pedestrians, bicycle users, and other Active Transportation users in the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) planning area CAMPO staff will be working with consultants Crafton Tull and LaneShift on this exciting planning process over the next 15 months.  Funding for this project is provided via the CAMPO Consolidated Planning Grant (80%) and local match provided by JC Parks (20%).
