Getting Around on Bike or Foot

Bicycling and walking are not just recreational activities; these low-tech transportation options can not only help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also traffic congestion and our demand for oil. Additional benefits of using these options include making neighborhoods safer and more friendly as well as reducing other environmental impacts of motorized transportation, such as solid and hazardous waste production, water pollution, greenhouse gases, noise, and the destruction of open space, wetlands, and other habitats.

The Bicycle & Pedestrian Program of the Federal Highway Administration's Office of Human and Natural Environment promotes bicycle and pedestrian transportation use, safety, and accessibility.
