The Kansas ATP will focus on how active transportation can be improved through better policies, planning, design and partnerships with other state agencies and local communities. Whether Kansans use active transportation regularly, rarely or somewhere in between, public input and ideas are critical to developing the plan.

“We encourage all Kansans to get involved by participating in an online public meeting and telling us about how and why they are incorporating active transportation into their lives or what improvements are needed for them to do so,” said Jenny Kramer, KDOT Bicycle and Pedestrian coordinator.

For questions on the meeting, contact Kramer at 785-296-5186 or [email protected].
