Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning

Bicycling and walking are important means of travel for thousands of people in the Denver region each day. That's why DRCOG works to support safety, comfortable and connected bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The benefits of providing bicycle and pedestrian facilities include:

  • Enhancing personal mobility options for people of all ages and incomes,
  • Reducing motor vehicle travel, travel costs, fuel consumption and air pollution, and
  • Improving overall health with increased physical activity​
