Got any bright ideas? Of course you do, and now you can suggest trail and bicycle transportation research ideas to the the US Department of Transportation. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is seeking public input for potential areas of bicycle and pedestrian transportation research.
Surface Transportation Environment and Planning Cooperative Research Program (STEP) is a program of the current transportation re-authorization bill, Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). SAFETEA-LU is charged with improving our understanding of the complex relationship between surface transportation, planning and the environment (FHWA). This is a great opportunity for some detailed research of trail and bicycle programs.
