VTrans On-Road Bicycle Plan Announcement

To meet the growing demand for bicycling facilities VTrans is kicking off an exciting new initiative, the VTrans On-Road Bicycle Plan. The Plan will help guide improvements along Vermont state highways to work better and be safer for all bicyclists -- families, commuters and recreational riders.

Get involved! You can contribute by identifying where you ride and where you want to ride by:

1.     Adding to the VTrans On-Road Bicycle WikiMap

2.     Telling your friends and neighbors to participate. Forward this email or post it on your local Front Porch Forum or hang up a flyer.

Phase 1. Over the next six months, and with YOUR help, VTrans will:

  • Collect information from the public about where they ride and where bicyclists want to ride on State roads.
  • Use this information to identify several tiers of bicycle corridors ranging from most desirable for bicycling to the least desirable for bicycling; and
  • Set the stage for where we should focus needed bicycle improvements.

Public input is critical to the success of this project. We thank you for helping to make the project a success by sharing your thoughts and creating project awareness by connecting others. 

If you have questions or comments related to this project, please contact VTrans Planning Coordinators:
