  • 1Estimating Bicycling and Walking for Planning and Project Development: A Guidebook
    1http://www.trb.org/Main/Blurbs/171138.aspx

    1TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 770: Estimating Bicycling and Walking for Planning and Project Development: A Guidebook contains methods and tools for practitioners to estimate bicycling and walking demand as part of regional-, corridor-, or project-level analyses.

  • Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Planning Handbook
    http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/processes/pedestrian_bicycle/pedestrian_bicycle_handbook/

    The Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Planning Handbook is designed to help State departments of transportation (DOTs) develop or update State pedestrian and bicycle plans. Based on research including interviews with nine State DOTs and critical evaluations of documents from 15 States, this handbook covers statewide planning from plan inception and scoping to engaging stakeholders and the general public; developing goals, objectives and strategies; collecting and analyzing data; linking to the larger statewide transportation planning process; and implementation.

  • Guidebook for Developing Pedestrian and Bicycle Performance Measures
    http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/bicycle_pedestrian/publications/performance_measures_guidebook/

    This guidebook is intended to help communities develop performance measures that can fully integrate pedestrian and bicycle planning in ongoing performance management activities. It highlights a broad range of ways that walking and bicycling investments, activity, and impacts can be measured and documents how these measures relate to goals identified in a community's planning process. It discusses how the measures can be tracked and what data are required, while also identifying examples of communities that are currently using the respective measures in their planning process.

  • Transportation Alternatives Program Performance Management Guidebook
    http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/transportation_alternatives/performance_management/

    This guidebook assists State Department of Transportation (DOT) and metropolitan planning organization (MPO) program managers in implementing a performance-based approach to ensure that staff and decisionmakers understand program goals, and that program actions are making progress towards achieving those goals.
