Planning for bike and pedestrian use is an integral part of CAMPO’s transportation planning activities. CAMPO area jurisdictions place a high priority on bike and pedestrian access and the ability of residents to safety and effectively use active transportation. The CAMPO area is also a popular destination for recreational bicyclists who enjoy riding in the scenic Willamette Valley.
CAMPO works with its local jurisdictions to help plan for appropriate and adequate bike/ped facilities. In recent years, CAMPO has completed a Bicyclist Safety Education program and will soon be embarking on a Transportation Safety Plan addressing all modes throughout the CAMPO planning area.
