    This interim report to Congress summarizes the progress and initial results of the Federal

    Highway Administration’s (FHWA) and the four pilot communities’ participation in the

    Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP) from its inception through May 2007.

    Section 1807 of the Safe, Accountable Flexible Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy

    for Users (SAFETEA-LU), P.L. 109-59, established the NTPP in August 2005. Over the span of

    4 years, the legislation provides $25 million in contract authority for each of the NTPP’s four

    pilot communities (Columbia, Missouri; Marin County, California; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and

    Sheboygan County, Wisconsin) “to construct … a network of nonmotorized transportation

    infrastructure facilities, including sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and pedestrian and bicycle trails, that

    connect directly with transit stations, schools, residences, businesses, recreation areas, and other

    community activity centers.”

    The purpose of the NTPP as stated in Section 1807 is “to demonstrate the extent to which

    bicycling and walking can carry a significant part of the transportation load, and represent a

    major portion of the transportation solution, within selected communities.” The legislation also

    calls for the Secretary of Transportation to “develop statistical information on changes in motor

    vehicle, nonmotorized transportation, and public transportation usage in communities

    participating in the program and assess how such changes decrease congestion and energy usage,

    increase the frequency of bicycling and walking, and promote better health and a cleaner

    environment.” Finally, the legislation calls for two reports to be submitted to Congress: an

    interim report by September 30, 2007, and a final report by September 30, 2010. This document

    is the Interim Report.
