Guidebook for Safe Transit Access for Pedestrians & Bicyclists


VHB assisted the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration in developing a safety guidebook for pedestrians and bicyclists who are accessing transit. The guide provides specific considerations to agencies who are responsible for planning and designing transit facilities and the multimodal infrastructure that people use to access those facilities.

Distributed by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the guidebook provides a cohesive approach to transit facility safety to improve it nationwide, including tools, data, and creative approaches for planning, evaluating, and implementing safer accessibility. The guidebook also includes tools to help identify safety issues and methods on how to access conditions at transit stops and conduct facility studies.
