Adopted December 2017

As part of their on-going work for the association, the APBP Policy Committee recently proposed a set of principles to the Board of Directors.  The principles are fundamental statements that are broadly acknowledged and acted upon by APBP members and will serve as a guide for our work in the coming year.  Caron Whitaker has been assisting the committee in her role as APBP Policy Specialist and we’re grateful for her guidance in federal and legislative matters.

APBP Policy Principles:

  1. APBP represents the professional expertise and practical experience of its members in transportation policy discussions to advance active and healthy communities.
  2. APBP endorses active transportation as an integral part of transportation systems through all stages of planning, design, funding, and implementation.
  3. APBP supports connected, convenient, and safe streets and pathways in every community and planning with the input of every member of a community. 
  4. APBP advances street designs that make walking and bicycling a viable option for everyone in every place.
