Report Abstract:
The Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks report is a resource and idea book intended to help small towns and rural communities support safe, accessible, comfortable, and active travel for people of all ages and abilities. In small towns and rural communities, active transportation is more common, but often these areas have limited infrastructure to support active transportation. This guide is intended to be used as a resource for practitioners developing or promoting multimodal networks in small towns and rural communities. This guide provides information on existing street design guidance and best practices for bicycle and pedestrian safety, and provides examples of how to interpret and apply these design practices to create safe and accessible multimodal networks.
