Complete Streets

The term Complete Streets was introduced in 2003 by America Bikes as part of a policy initiative to ensure equal rights and safety to all users of the street regardless of age, ability, and travel mode choice.

Since then, Complete Streets policies have been adopted across the country, with over 1500 policies in place today.
