Safety remains a TPB priority. Everyone should be able to get around safely. Whether on foot or bike, in a car, or on a bus. At TPB, we’re working together to reduce fatalities and injuries so every trip is a safe one. The TPB and its staff, with consultant support, have conducted analysis to identify priority strategies and are implementing transportation planning processes and projects that prioritize safety for people walking, biking, taking transit and in autos.
