The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has published a toolkit for state departments of transportation to deliver safe and convenient bike and pedestrian infrastructure.

The compendium of resources includes work from the Transportation Research Board (TRB) National Cooperative Highway Research Program, the TRB Transit Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) Program, the TRB Transit Cooperative Research Program, the TRB Standing Committee on Pedestrians, and the TRB Cooperative Research Programs Division, citing research, reports, and conference panels.

The website organizes these resources according to themes like getting the data right, designing for safety, and making equitable pedestrian plans, among others.
