FHWA Pedestrian and Bicycle Transportation University Course: 3. User and Mode Characteristics

Source: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

Explores what makes active travel distinct from motorized transportation: the unique characteristics of pedestrians and bicyclists (their capabilities, vulnerabilities, needs, and behaviors) and differences in trip purposes. Includes special considerations for the bicycle (and e-bike) as a design vehicle and for historically underserved/underrepresented populations (seniors, women, children, people with disabilities, low English proficiency, lower income, etc.).
