Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

NOACA’s bicycle and pedestrian planning program works to improve the region’s transportation infrastructure so that bicycling and walking can be safer and more convenient options. Additionally, bikeways and sidewalks provide connections to other modes of transportation, and allow for a healthier and more environmentally friendly way to get from here to there.

Regional Bicycle Plan

NOACA's 2013 Regional Bicycle Plan provides a vision for increasing the use of bicycles for transportation and commuting; serves as a guide for developing bicycle infrastructure; and includes a priority bikeway system that shows where bikeway facilities should be built.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Counts  

With the generous help of volunteers, NOACA conducts annual bicycle and pedestrian counts throughout Northeast Ohio in May and September. 

Bike Maps

NOACA develops bike maps for all 5 counties within the region in collaboration with county and local governments, metroparks systems, and non-profit organizations.

APBP Webinars

NOACA hosts viewings of the 2018 Association for Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals’ (APBP) monthly webinar series.  APBP's webinars are a great way to bring stakeholders, colleagues and clients together to explore bicycle and pedestrian issues and build support for active transportation. Plus, the webinars offer training credits!  Webinars take place the third Wednesday of each month, at 3 p.m. Visit for a list of webinars. To register, email
