Bicycle & Pedestrian Planning

Bicycle and pedestrian planning goals are to create and maintain a safe, user-friendly bicycle and pedestrian network to encourage bicycling and walking as modes of transportation, as well as recreation, resulting in fewer cars/congestion, increased health, a cleaner environment, and an overall greater sense of community, within the County and the Region.

Walk & Roll Anne Arundel! (2023), the recent update to the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan, is a vision for walking, bicycling, and rolling using a connected network of streets and trails where it’s safer, easier, and more comfortable to get around outside of a vehicle.

The plan builds upon Move Anne Arundel!, the County’s recently adopted transportation master plan, as well as the previous 2003 and 2013 Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plans.

Anne Arundel County has partnered with Anne Arundel County Public Schools to perform a pilot program to teach elementary school age children how to safely bike and walk on roads. To learn more about this pilot program, click here

Google Maps can help you identify a bicycle or walking route from your origin to your destination, including bus stops. Just choose "Get Directions" and choose the bicycle or the pedestrian walking icons and Google will give you options. This Level of Traffic Stress map can help identify which roads may be higher or lower levels of comfort to ride a bicycle on.
