The resources listed below are about Complete Streets, also referred to as Safe Streets, which are programs and policies that encourage communities to ensure that their roads are safe for all users — drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation riders, older adults, children, people with disabilities.
The materials are organized by type (e.g. reports, case studies, etc.) and are presented in reverse chronological order.
If you have suggestions for resources to add to this collection, let us know by emailing aarp.org/livable.
