Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning in the Tucson region

Bicycle planning in Tucson has been very successful. The region hosts a vast network of on-street and multi-use trails, as well as several bicycle boulevards. The City and County are leading the way by using innovative facility designs to enhance bicyclist safety, visibility , and access on the region’s roadways. Some reasons that bicycling is effective here: a favorable climate; evolving roadways that can accommodate new facilities; an active population; good visibility along roadways (desert vegetation is low and sparse); and supportive public, non-profit and volunteer organizations.
