Fostering Innovation in Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation Pooled Fund Study

The overall goals for this Transportation Pooled Fund (TPF) study are to: (1) provide answers to emerging questions about innovative facility design, planning, and implementation to improve safety and mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists; (2) conduct effective and efficient research of innovative traffic control devices to accelerate their incorporation into the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD); (3) facilitate the collection and reporting of robust transportation facility data that will allow for updating Federal, State, local, and other design guidelines, such as the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) design guides; and (4) support research on addressing rural multimodal transportation needs, regulatory streamlining, opportunities to improve cost effectiveness and efficiencies in the transportation system, and multimodal investment analysis.
