Active Transportation

Richland County Active Transportation Plan

The Active Transportation Plan seeks to create a regional document that: guides and identifies necessary bicycle and pedestrian projects throughout the County; provides guidance on developing programs that educate and encourage residents to walk and bike as healthy, enjoyable and efficient transportation choices; focuses on ways to improve, expand and connect existing bicycle, pedestrian and transit networks.

The Active Transportation Plan's Interactive Map is a continually updated project list that highlights active transportation projects that are planned, in-progress, or recently finished in Richland County.

The Richland B&O Trail
The Richland B&O Trail is a paved, 18.4 mile, multi-use trail opened in 1995 as part of the federal rails-to-trails program. The trail is built on the former Baltimore & Ohio Railway line and rolls through the communities of Mansfield, Lexington, Bellville, and Butler. Each community has multiple access points and parking opportunities.

Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)
TAP is a federal program that funds projects to establish and improve the infrastructure for nonmotorized transportation. The program provides federal funds for community-based projects that expand travel choices and enhance the transportation experience by integrating modes and improving the cultural, historic, and environmental aspects of our transportation infrastructure.
