Equity Matters

APBP members are leaders in transportation equity. The inclusivity you bring to your work matters!

Equity is core to policies like Complete Streets and Vision Zero. Secretary Foxx recently accentuated equity as a core value in transportation planning and design. Expect to see greater emphasis on transportation.

APBP participates in the Transportation Equity Caucus. Learn more about this coalition and about equity at the May 18 APBP webinar.

New Tool

Use the new 2016 National Physical Activity Plan (NPAP) in your work. Read it here.

NPAP establishes overarching priorities in nine societal sectors, including Transportation, Land Use and Community Design. Walking and bicycling feature prominently in the strategies and tactics.

APBP thanks Margo Pedroso of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership for her attentive on-the-ground work in Washington, DC to ensure content excellence.
