FHWA Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation University Course

Updated: Nov 26, 2019

Here's a great resource for educators who teach about Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation! Also for anyone who is interested in learning more about this topic.


The FHWA Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation University Course is designed to help educators inspire the next generation of practitioners to support safe, vibrant, and multimodal transportation systems. Through this course, students will recognize the legitimacy of the bicycle and pedestrian modes; understand how policy, planning, and engineering practices can be improved to create a more balanced transportation system; and become familiar with basic policies, practices, tools, and design principles that can be used to create bicycle and pedestrian-friendly communities.

The course contains 21 PowerPoint slideshows with speaker notes and complementary materials including assignments, readings, and videos. The course materials are intended for use in graduate or undergraduate courses in civil engineering and/or urban/regional planning programs, but materials can also be incorporated into classes in public health, public policy and administration, and landscape architecture. The course spans a wide range of topics including an introduction to bicycling and walking issues, planning and designing for bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and supporting elements and programs.
