The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is currently working on the Wisconsin Active Transportation Plan 2050 (ATP). In early August, WisDOT will hold six virtual open houses to talk about the ATP and hear what goals and visions people throughout Wisconsin (you!) have for walking, biking, and rolling. For more information, click here!

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is updating the Wisconsin Bicycle Transportation Plan and Wisconsin Pedestrian Policy Plan and combining them into the Wisconsin Active Transportation Plan 2050 (ATP).  

The ATP will be a statewide long-range plan focused on human-powered modes of transportation, such as bicycling and walking. This plan will evaluate active transportation opportunities and needs, resulting in policies and actions that will align with and further Connect 2050, Wisconsin’s statewide long-range transportation plan.

What is Active Transportation? 

Active transportation modes are primarily human-powered forms of travel, such as walking, bicycling, in-line skating, skateboarding, and others.

Why is Active Transportation Important? 

Active transportation modes and facilities provide benefits such as: 

  • Promoting physical health
  • Enhancing quality of life and economic opportunity
  • Providing affordable and convenient transportation options
  • Providing alternatives to single-occupancy-vehicle travel
  • Reducing vehicle emissions

About

The Active Transportation Plan 2050 (ATP) will be a statewide long-range plan focused on human-powered modes of transportation, such as bicycling and walking. This plan will evaluate active transportation opportunities and needs, resulting in policies and actions that will align with and further Connect 2050, Wisconsin’s statewide long-range transportation plan.

WisDOT published a Notice of Intent to initiate the plan update and sought preliminary comments in May 2022.

The ATP is intended to be both a policy document and an action plan with specific recommendations that will assist WisDOT with its commitments in providing long-term transportation for active modes of transportation, i.e., biking and walking users in our state.
