In 2015, to accommodate the increasing change in community interest and awareness of pedestrian and bicycle facilies, the Corpus Christi MPO, in partnership with its member organizaons, led the creation of a Strategic Plan for Active Mobility to replace the previous (2005) bicycle and pedestrian plan. This plan answers three fundamental questions that guide capital roadway projects within the MPO planning area: 1) Where should bike facilies be installed to create a cohesive network that connects key destinations and accommodates a diversity of riders? 2) What type of facilities ((e.g. on-street bike lanes, off-street cycle tracks, etc.)) should be installed in which locations? and 3) How, ((i.e. to what standards)) should those facilities be designed?
The Corpus Christi MPO's Bicycle Plan is intended to foster cycling as a meaningful transportation alternative for riders of diverse abilities. This plan was created to alleviate uncertainty about where to make investments in bicycle infrastructure and how to design and maintain that infrastructure. The bicycle mobility network described in this plan was developed for the bike-dependent commuter and casual recreational rider - not the high-speed sport cyclist. This infrastructure plan will also serve other micro-mobility vehicles, such as electric scooters.
The Corpus Christi MPO region is a place where walking and biking are integral to the community culture and represent viable, safe travel and recreation options for residents and visitors of diverse abilities.STRATEGIC PLAN FOR ACTIVE MOBILITY COASTAL BEND IN MOTION WEBSITE

The Corpus Christi Metropolitan Planning Organization (Corpus Christi MPO) has partnered with the City of Corpus Christi (City) and the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority (CCRTA) to plan for improved access to transit and pedestrian thoroughfares. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) recognizes the importance of good pedestrian connections to transit and has issued guidance allowing for federal funding eligibility of pedestrian improvements made within one-half mile of a transit stop.
This Master Plan documents the existing condition of the pedestrian-transit infrastructure within a radius of one-half mile of transit stops in the Sports, Entertainment, and Arts (SEA) District, Downtown, and North Beach study areas. The Master Plan recommends infrastructure improvements and estimates the associated costs and benefits generated by the repair and installation of sidewalks, curbs, driveways, crosswalks, bike lanes, landscaping, pedestrian-level lighting, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps. The pedestrian and transit improvements proposed in the Master Plan will enhance the City’s walkability, increase access to public transit, and improve air quality by changing single-occupancy vehicle trips to transit trips. The included information will help establish FTA recognition of the federal eligibility of the Master Plan capital improvements and support the future pursuit of federal funds.PEDESTRIAN-TRANSIT ACCESS MASTER PLAN APPENDICES
