About the CPBST

The Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training Program (CPBST) is a joint project of UC Berkeley SafeTREC and California Walks. The CPBST program works with local residents and health, transportation and safety advocates to understand a community’s walking and biking safety concerns and advance their pedestrian and bicycle safety goals. We work to strengthen collaboration between all safety partners, discuss transportation safety information and local crash data, and collectively develop a community-driven safety action plan.  Our team works with a local Planning Committee to customize the workshop to fit the unique needs of each community. 

The CPBST peer exchanges are supported by funding from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
