The Planning Department’s approach to bicycle planning are summarized in the four goals of the Bicycle Master Plan:

  1. Increasing bicycling rates in Montgomery County
  2. Creating a highly-connected, convenient and low-stress bicycling network
  3. Providing equal access to low-stress bicycling for all members of the community
  4. Improving the safety of bicycling, in line with the County’s Vision Zero goal to eliminate traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries.
