Policy Plan 2008

*Note: Elements of this plan are updated as part of the 2021 VTrans Bicycle and Pedestrian Strategic Plan

The State of Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) has developed a Vermont Pedestrian and Bicycle Policy Plan to promote bicycling and walking as an integral part of the overall transportation network in Vermont.

The 2008 plan provides a brief overview of the current status of bicycling and walking in Vermont, followed by a description of VTrans’ vision, goals, objectives and overall policy relating to bicycling and walking as components of the transportation system. It explains the various actions that VTrans and other partners associated with improved bicycling and walking in the State can take to reach the goals. In addition, the plan outlines a series of performance measures that VTrans can use to evaluate progress in achieving pedestrian and bicycle system goals.
