Lancaster County Active Transportation Efforts


Lighten Up Lancaster County is coordinating efforts to increase the bikeability and walkability of our city, townships, and municipalities. The goal of our efforts is to increase the number of citizens living within communities that have policies and plans to support healthy community design.
  1. Promote Complete Streets Policies

    Complete Streets are safe and convenient for all types of transportation and users of all ages and abilities. Lighten Up Lancaster County works with the Lancaster County Planning Commission to bring Complete Streets concepts and policies to Lancaster.
