What We Do: The Tulsa Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee advises INCOG and the city governments in the INCOG area on projects, policies, and programs that improve and/or affect bicycling and pedestrian conditions in Tulsa.

Vision:  In Tulsa and surrounding communities, people of all ages, incomes, and abilities can access destinations on safe, well-connected biking and walking routes. Bicycle and pedestrian networks are recognized as integral, interconnected elements of the transportation system that contribute to our diverse and vibrant communities and to our health and quality of life.

Goals:
1. Receive silver bicycle-friendly status from the League of American Bicyclists by 2022.

2. Receive bronze pedestrian-friendly status from Walk Friendly Communities by 2018.

3. Achieve a 50% reduction in traffic fatalities for people walking and bicycling every 10 years (7% annually).

4. Increase the bicycle commuter rate from 0.4% (in 2012) to 1% in 2020.
Increase the percent of pedestrian commuters from 2% (in 2012) to 3% in 2020.
(data from US Census Bureau)
Increase the adult cycling participation rate from 25% (in 2015) to 35% in 2018
Increase the adult walking participation rate from 72% (in 2015) to 80% in 2018.
(data from Tulsa Health Department’s Community Health Needs Assessment)

5. Dedicate 7% of transportation funding to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure, including 1% for maintenance of infrastructure.

This funding percentage includes ADA transition plan funding that updates sidewalks and/or other pedestrian improvements, complete streets/multi-modal studies, and bond packages dedicated solely to bike/ped infrastructure improvements

6. Implement the following actions in 2018:
Education
A. Develop and implement Bike/Pedestrian Friendly Motorist training
B. Conduct a LCI (League Certified Instructor) training
Encouragement
A. Recruit Bike Friendly Business applicants - two per quarter for 2018
B. Work with City of Tulsa and school districts (Tulsa, Jenks, Union) to promote Walk and Bike to School/Work activities
C. Investigate the possibility of a coalition dedicated to walkability
D. Advocate/support an Active Transportation (bike/walk) Coordinator at the City of Tulsa

7. Oversee and encourage implementation of the GoPlan, with a goal of 10% implementation in the City of Tulsa by 2019.
