Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Study

A Study for the Nashville Region

The regional bicycle and pedestrian study is intended to help establish a strategic vision for improving walking and bicycling opportunities in the greater Nashville region. That strategic vision feeds into the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization's (MPO's) overall regional transportation plan and provides the basis by which future funding priorities of the MPO are established for bicycle and pedestrian accommodations within Davidson, Maury, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Wilson, and Williamson.

Working with local governments, businesses, non-profit organizations, and the general public, the Nashville Area MPO recently updated several tools from its Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Study.

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Levels of Service, Bicycle and Pedestrian Latent Demand Model, and Inventory of Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities have been updated and show significant increases in the number of facilities in the region as well as the increasing demand for bicycle and pedestrian travel.  County maps showing the updated inventory, roadway levels of service, and demand are below.
