The Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP)

SAFEATEA-LU Section 1807 established the NTPP. This program has provided over 25 million dollars each to four communities--Columbia, MO; Marin County, CA; Minneapolis Area, MN; Sheboygan County, WI--to demonstrate how improved walking and bicycling networks can increase rates of walking and bicycling. FHWA was required to report on the results of the NTPP. An Interim Report was submitted to Congress in January 2008. A Final Report was submitted in April 2012. Outcome measures in the Final Report include estimates concerning changes in: 1) vehicle and transit use; 2) rates of walking and bicycling; and 3) health and environmental measures. More information about the NTPP can be found on the sites listed below:
