Bicycle/Pedestrian Plannning

INCOG, in coordination with local officials, was designated by the Governor of Oklahoma as the organization responsible for developing and implementing the Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (CTP) and a process to select and prioritize projects for the Tulsa Transportation Management Area (TMA).

Plans are developed which identify improvements to be implemented within the next four years (Transportation Improvement Program) and 20-30 years in the future (Regional Transportation Plan). These plans, updated at least every four years, are integrated in the land development and capital programs of communities throughout the region. Transportation plans address not only roads and bridges but also bicycle and pedestrian facilities, freight, and transit. INCOG is also responsible for transportation programs that reduce individual and community isolation and improve access to jobs, health care, and community life for residents in the region.

Bicycle/Pedestrian Regional Master Plan

The GO Plan is a Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan which provides a comprehensive regional plan for pedestrian and bicycle improvements; provides connectivity to the existing regional trail network using on-street treatments; improves pedestrian and bicycle safety; provides a more strategic approach to competing for pedestrian and bicycle funding; and identifies barriers, with solutions, for residents to safely access destinations using walking or bicycling modes within the Tulsa region. The plan includes 11 cities in the Tulsa Metropolitan Area: Bixby, Broken Arrow, Catoosa, Collinsville, Coweta, Glenpool, Jenks, Owasso, Sand Springs, Skiatook, and Tulsa.

Bicycle Transportation
A short bike ride has both physical and mental health benefits and decreases the amount of pollution and automobile related accidents. The Tulsa Area Trails System is a great place to enjoy riding your bicycle. Many streets in our area are also maked with bike lanes to promote bicycles for both recreational and alternative transportation uses.

Townies Bicycle Rentals
The distinctive pink townie bikes offer convenient, free 24-hour bicycle rentals which are operated seasonally and maintained by the Saint Francis Health System. Rental stations are located at 19th and 41st Streets. Equipped with GPS tracking, the bikes are released by swiping a credit card, with the fee credited back to your card in full when the bike is returned to the rental rack within 24 hours. For more information, visit www.tulsa-townies.com.
