Transportation Work Area

Converting to “alternative” transportation and creating safe environments for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The Transportation Work Area focuses on ways to improve and to find alternate means of transportation.  The overall goal of the Transportation Work Area is to make the Stillwater area cleaner, safer, and healthier for all of our residents and visitors.  This Work Area consists of two work groups. 

One (Bicycle Friendly Community) focuses on improving bicycling and pedestrian safety and accessibility, primarily using the Complete Streets methodology. The second (EV Charging) focuses on the promotion and use of EVs to and within Stillwater. This is done primarily by increasing accessibility to EV charging in Stillwater. Both of these work groups significantly factor into the SSMN climate action strategies by reducing overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from gas-powered cars.

Basics Of City Cycling | Safety and Confidence

If you've not done it before, city cycling can be a little daunting. Emma, Si and Chris take you through some important considerations when you are new to cycling in an urban environment.

Cycling in an urban environment can be a little different when you are used to being in the open countryside. It's important to always be prepared and one way of doing this is to plan your routes. This can help you incorporate more bike paths and avoid highly congested areas. Apart from the obvious of having a bike, there is actually not that much equipment an urban cyclist needs. We would also advise a helmet, lights and a lock in case you need to do some shopping. Finally, remember to stick to the rules of the road and treat other road users as you'd wish to be treated yourself.
