Download Action Briefs for Practitioners and Regional Governments on MPOs

SRTSNP_logo_socal_smallNew regional resources for practitioners and regional governments are now available!

The briefs identify opportunities to engage Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) and local governments to leverage and improve conditions for walking and biking with a focus on new federal transportation legislation, Map-21. They are good primers for those needing to understand the roles and background of MPOs in transportation planning and administration. For local Safe Routes to School supporters, it’s critical to learn more about the local MPO’s approach to planning and funding. The briefs provide action steps for advocates, ways to align talking points to MPOs, case studies and strategies for incorporating walking and bicycling as a transportation mode.
