The Pedestrian Toolbox provides information about hundreds of tools that can be used to address common pedestrian issues, with seven specific toolboxes that focus on:

  • Designing and engineering safe and accessible roadways and pedestrian facilities
  • Educating roadway users, property owners, and decision makers about rules, rights, and responsibilities
  • Enforcing laws, proper behaviors, and use of roadway facilities
  • Encouraging walking and physical activity throughout the community
  • Short- and long-term planning, land use, and zoning for the built environment
  • Ensuring equity, health, and environmental sustainability
  • Finding funding to support and sustain pedestrian improvements

Using the Toolbox
