University-Level Courses

Integration of pedestrian and bicycle planning into transportation planning is essential in creating sustainable, livable communities. Two interdisciplinary university-level courses have been developed to explore the core concepts of pedestrian and bicycle design and strategies related to creating effective and comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian plans and programs. The two courses are:

Students taking either course will recognize the legitimacy of the bicycle and pedestrian modes, understand how policy, planning, and engineering practices can be improved to create a more balanced transportation system, and become familiar with basic policies, practices, tools, and design principles that can be used to create bicycle and pedestrian-friendly communities.
