Bicycle & Pedestrian
As of August 2022, the YCPC, in concert with the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Steering Committee, are soliciting feedback on York County’s bicycle and pedestrian sentiments and infrastructure related to non-motorized transportation accessibility and mobility.
YAMPO focuses bicycle and pedestrian improvements within rabbittransit’s fixed route service area. YAMPO primarily funds bicycle and pedestrian projects through its allocation of Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Program funding.
YCPC Transportation Planning staff also works with local, regional, and state organizations on bicycle and pedestrian issues. These organizations include the:
- Bicycle Access Council
- Bicycle South Central Pennsylvania
- City of York’s Health Bureau
- Healthy York County Coalition
- Multi-modal Division of PennDOT’s Central Office
- York County Rail Trail Authority
With eight other MPOs, YAMPO funds Commuter Services of Pennsylvania, a professionally staffed organization that provides free services that help commuters find alternatives to driving to work alone.
YCPC Transportation Planning staff participates in regional freight planning efforts.
The Susquehanna Regional Transportation Authority is funded in part by YAMPO, and SRTA’s Board of Directors serve as the YAMPO Transit Committee. Through the Transportation Improvement Program, the YAMPO Coordinating Committee approves SRTA capital and operating expenses. YCPC Transportation Planning staff work closely with SRTA staff on transit planning efforts, most notably by leading the development of rabbittransit Transit Development Plans and the Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan.
Between updates to the Long Range Transportation Plan, YAMPO produces reports about the condition of various aspects of the transportation network. YAMPO updates these reports on a regular basis, as new data becomes available.
