The Pierce County Comprehensive Plan promotes the development of a connected active transportation system. It also highlights programs and resources to encourage and enable active transportation modes. The Puget Sound region’s Active Transportation Plan is one of the main resources used to create Pierce County’s plan.

Active Transportation Resources

There are a number of local resources to guide active transportation around the Pierce County. Our Bicycling Resources page includes the Pierce County Bike Map. The map shows trails and other facilities to help cyclists choose their route. The Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department makes a walking guide of popular routes in the County.
