Biking & Walking
Using your bike or walking for transportation is a great way to save money, improve your health, and help the environment. It’s also a great way to reduce stress caused by traffic congestion. The number of people who bike to work grew about 60% in the last decade. With so many more people making bicycling part of their workday routine, biking has become the fastest growing mode of commuting.
Biking may be the only solution for the “first” and “last” mile of your commute. Transit makes taking longer trips easier with buses, ferries, and light rail vehicles equipped with spaces for your bike. Incorporate public transportation into your travel plans by checking Google Maps for Transit.
The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization offers regional active transportation information about safety, usage, bicycle and pedestrian laws, and facility types. Search there interactive map for current and planned bike infrastructure and amenities.
