Active Transportation Plan

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​EDITED Active Transportation Program Logo-horizontal-color.jpg

Project Background 

The City of Phoenix Active Transportation Plan is intended to build from and support existing plans and initiatives, including the Vision Zero Road Safety Action Plan, Climate Action Plan, Complete Streets Policy and the Phoenix General Plan, among others. 

Learn about the Vision Zero Road Safety Action Plan

The Active Transportation Plan will build off successes from those initiatives and identify specific barriers around walking, biking and rolling in Phoenix. The plan will include design guides supported by national best practice research, and what is already being implemented on the ground in Phoenix. The development of the plan is currently in progress.​

​Plan Timeline​

Continuous​ Progress

The city continues to make progress since developing the 2014 Bike Master Plan and has implemented hundreds of miles of bike lanes since its adoption. Phoenix is moving into the next phase of active transportation implementation by considering safety and comfort in design through the use of buffered and protected infrastructure. This is reflected in recently completed projects, such as the 3rd Avenue two-way protected bike lane and the 5th Avenue protected bike lane. 

Elements of those recently completed projects include:

  • Shade structures for pedestrians
  • Stormwater drainage modifications
  • Traffic signal safety improvements
  • Conventional and protected bike lanes

The photos below show the addition of a two-way protected bike lane along 3rd Avenue from Roosevelt Street to McDowell Road.

Draft Review Survey​

The draft review survey is an important tool that will be used to gather feedback about the draft plan and recommendations. 

The survey questions provide residents an opportunity to weigh in on the recommended policies, design guidance and the network development approach. 

The survey was open through January 8, 2023. ​
