Over the past few years, H-GAC has been working with stakeholders to develop the 2040 Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan.
The 2040 Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan was adopted by the Transportation Policy Council on January 22, 2015.

The Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan is a long-range planning document that describes our region’s vision for enhancing pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure within the eight-county Transportation Management Area (TMA). It supports the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), a long-range, multi-modal transportation plan that guides investment in all types of transportation infrastructure throughout the Houston-Galveston area.
Our region is home to more than six million people who live in rural towns, suburban communities, and dense urban centers. By 2040, our region is expected to have 3.2 million more residents. As our region grows, greater demand will be placed on our transportation system. Enhancing our region’s pedestrian and bicycle network will provide greater transportation options for people of all ages and abilities, while improving public health and creating new economic development opportunities.
