PennDOT Active Transportation Resources
|This PennDOT page outlines a variety of resources related to active transportation and developing an Active Transportation plan, PennDOT Connects, biking, and walking.
How-To Guide for Developing Active Transportation Plans
|This guide was put together by the PennDOT Statewide Bike/Ped Coordinator to help communities understand the structure, process, and elements of developing an Active Transportation Plan. The last five pages outline a wide array of state and federal funding options.
|This PennDOT page introduces a more comprehensive process for planning and extended resources and education for municipalities. Through the Connects program, there are more opportunities for local input earlier in the planning process for any given state road project. Concerns such as safety issues, active transportation modes, stormwater management, utilities, historical preservation, and many others can be addressed prior to developing project scopes and cost estimates.
PennDOT's Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP)
|The LTAP program is designed to help Pennsylvania's municipalities make the best use of their roadway maintenance dollars. LTAP provides free services to PA municipalities around education, data collection, and on-site technical assistance to communities for road operations and maintenance. Active Transportation topics include an introduction to Active Transportation, information on crosswalks and ADA compliance, mapping resources, integrating Complete Streets Policies with other ordinances, bikeway selection, and more.
MPOs/RPOS Metropolitan and Rural Planning Organizations
|This PennDOT page lists the Metropolitan and Rural Planning Organizations which interface with PennDOT for regional transportation planning and provide municipalities with access to the various aspects of the transportation planning process, including Transportation Improvement Plans (TIP) and Twelve Year Plans (TYP). Key contacts are provided for all transportation planning and funding projects.
|This is a map of the 11 PennDOT Districts (numbers go to 12 but there is no district 7), listing the counties covered and linking to the live public-facing page and contact information for each.
PennDOT District Planners
