There's growing evidence that providing great places to walk and bicycle is a successful strategy for maintaining or restoring economic vitality. Savvy practitioners need to know how to make persuasive economic arguments for building pedestrian and bicycle facilities. View this webinar to learn about different approaches to convincing decision-makers to invest in active transportation.

Todd Litman, Victoria Transport Policy Institute, provides information on VTPI’s work to identify and calculate different economic benefits related to nonmotorized facilities, in areas such as productivity and spending. Gain insight into how nonmotorized travel is undercounted, which benefits can be measured, and how to monetize or value those benefits. Martha Roskowski, Green Lane Project Director, discusses how communities are capitalizing on walkable and bike-friendly development to attract top talent and enhance economic competitiveness. A case study from the Niagara (Ontario) Region describes the Economic Value of Active Transportation Project, which supports citizens and decision makers working on active transportation and built environment initiatives and aims to create a calculator tool that can demonstrate the economic impact of nonmotorized projects. (The AICP approved one CM credit for this webinar.)
