WalknBike Nashville

WalknBike logo

Nashville’s leaders have heard the demand to improve walking and biking and Mayor Megan Barry is committed to meeting the need for more sidewalks and bikeways. WalknBike will be the second update to Metro’s 2003 plan. The last update was 2008.

Led by Metro Public Works, Metro project team members include Metro Planning Commission, Metro Public Health Department, MTA, MPO, Metro Nashville Police Department, Metro General Services, Metro Nashville Public Schools, and Metro Parks and Recreation. The project team is also composed of Alta Planning + Design, Civic Engineering and Information Technology, Hawkins Partners, Inc., MP&F Public Relations, and a steering committee made up of internal and external partners.

The project includes a robust public engagement process, evaluation of peer and aspirational cities, updated inventory of Davidson County’s sidewalk and bikeways, modernized project prioritization, a comprehensive funding strategy, and new tools to provide easier access to information about implementation and program progress.

This yearlong process depends on your input. Help Nashville prioritize strategic, equitable investment in sidewalks and bikeways. Stay connected for ways to engage and participate in the development of WalknBike.

Over 9,000 Nashvillians have been involved with the WalknBike Project to date!  Nearly 2,000 of you completed the first survey and about 3200 completed the second WalknBike Survey providing your input to help us understand how to prioritize improvements.  Over 3,000 citizens have participated in our interactive map online and over 1,000 have attended events such as the Mayor's Transit Triathlon, Tour de Nash, WalknBike community meetings and pop-up events at festivals and meetings throughout the county. 

The WalknBike Steering Committee has worked on recommendations for walking and biking and the project team is now working to analyze data collected and input received from citizens, the steering committee and peer and aspirational cities.
