Capital Coexist is a localized bicycle and pedestrian safety campaign and resource clearinghouse developed in response to feedback received after completing the Albany Bicycle Master Plan. It has safety tips for bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers, as well as information about current bicycle and pedestrian-related transportation projects, events and educational materials.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Education Series
CDTC offers webinars developed by the Association of Pedestrian & Bicycle Professionals (APBP), Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), Pedestrian & Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), and Transportation Research Board (TRB) throughout the year. These webinars and other educational opportunities are valuable for public and private sector planners, engineers, and designers to advance transportation planning and engineering in the Capital Region. Professional development and continuing education credits are available. The schedule will be updated as new educational opportunities are announced.
