This summer we're hosting three workshops through our program, the Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI). Learn more: Integrating Bike-Ped Topics into University Transportation Courses (June 19 - 20) and Comprehensive Bikeway Design (Aug 13 - 17)


This three-day workshop offers strategies for building and strengthening communities around increased walking and bicycling. You'll learn and experience firsthand the design of various, successful active transportation programs that incorporate these strategies.

We'll kick it off with city staff on a behind-the-scenes learning tour of Portland's Sunday Parkways, the city's premiere Open Streets initiative that attracts over 80,000 participants annually. The subsequent days will delve into other transportation demand management and transportation options programs that play a key role in helping more people to bike, walk, and use transit.

This course offers insights and strategies to make the case for policymakers, inspire communities, and build a movement toward healthier, more active cities.
