What is a Complete Street?

Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work. They allow buses to run on time and make it safe for people to walk to and from train stations…complete streets help to create livable communities for various types of users, including children, people with disabilities, and older adults. Complete streets improve equity, safety and public health..”]  SmartGrowth America
