The Las Cruces Active Transportation Plan builds on the Comprehensive Plan and other ongoing planning efforts to improve conditions for walking and biking across the City for people of all ages and abilities. The Plan serves as a road map for the City to grow as a place where walking and biking can thrive. By enacting smart policy that encourages pedestrian-friendly design, closing pedestrian and bicycle network gaps, and implementing programs that encourage and promote walking and biking, it will be more convenient, comfortable, and safe to walk and bike citywide.
The present Active Transportation Plan was unanimously approved by City Council on October 15, 2018.
As a part of the City’s ongoing efforts to further active transportation in our community, collecting accurate and up-to-date data is a necessity. Strava is a free app where you can log your cycling or walking trips. This data is anonymized and available to the City, and aids in data-driven planning and projects. If you would like your cycling routes to be considered in future planning efforts and projects, please consider downloading.
Sign-up, get active, and start logging your cycling trips!
