About the CPBST
The Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) program works with local residents, schools, agencies, and other safety partners to build synergy and develop a tailored, community-driven action plan to improve walking and biking safety and strengthen collaboration between all. During the workshop, we will review local crash data and the community’s traffic safety experiences, educate participants on pedestrian and bicycle safety best practices, guide participants on a walking and biking safety assessment, and culminate in identifying actionable next steps. The CPBST is committed to equitable community outreach and engagement in active transportation planning. We prioritize working in communities that are at higher risk for road traffic injuries and addressing the safety needs of people who are underserved by traditional transportation planning and resources.
The CPBST team adapted the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Safe System elements and principles to make it more impactful for grassroots community engagement. Specifically, we emphasize the role of community-based expertise and strengthen collaboration between transportation professionals and communities to create lasting safety and mobility improvements.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
