Through ATX Walk Bike Roll, the city of Austin will update its sidewalk, urban trails, and bicycle plans. These plans will guide how we build urban trails, sidewalks, crosswalks, and bike lanes. They will also identify where we need them most. We’ll need your feedback as we explore new options for traveling and getting outside.

What's happening now?

City staff have made edits to the three plans based on public input and feedback from boards and commissions. View the latest plans using the links below:

The revised plans and ASMP amendments were presented to the Planning Commission on July 25, 2023. View the video of the presentation

The final round of engagement will be through the City Council public hearing process. Austin City Council will hold a public hearing on Thursday, Nov. 30, and consider an ordinance to adopt the three modal plans while making amendments to the ASMP and the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan.
The meeting begins at 10 a.m. at Austin City Hall Council Chambers, 301 West Second Street. You can also view the meeting online through the ATXN website. Members of the public are able to speak during the public hearing. 
If you would like to comment on the final draft proposals, you may either attend virtually by viewing the meeting online and registering to speak in advance, or by going to City Hall to participate in person. Visit the City Clerk’s Public Participation webpage for more information on how to participate in the meeting.

Updating three plans

  • Urban Trails Plan (2014): The plan update for the Urban Trails Program will re-examine the proposed trail network, develop a new project selection process, and improve policies with the goal of building more miles of trails in less time.
  • Sidewalk Plan (2016): The plan update for the Sidewalk Program and Pedestrian Crossing Program will look beyond sidewalks to create a safe pedestrian network. The update will consider where safe crossings are needed, as well as curb ramps, pedestrian islands, and more. 
  • Bicycle Plan (2014): The plan update for the Bicycle Program will reevaluate the proposed on-street bikeway network. The update will better integrate the on-street bikeway network with urban trails, transit, and other regional projects. 

Updating these plans together will give you more choices for how you travel. That brings us closer to achieving the Austin Strategic Mobility Plan (ASMP) goal of increasing how many people walk, bike, or take transit.

Centered on equity

ATX Walk Bike Roll will center racial equity in our planning efforts. Racial equity can be defined as “the condition when race no longer predicts a person’s quality of life outcomes in our community.” 

We know that previous planning efforts have invested more heavily in some parts of Austin, and have contributed to challenges communities of color face when it comes to transportation access, health, and safety. We are reevaluating how we make decisions and will focus on working with these communities throughout the decision-making process. Learn how we are updating our plans through an equity lens on the About ATX Walk Bike Roll webpage.
