Complete Streets Policy

Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities.

In 2012, in response to an initiative from the Citizens Advisory Committee, the TPB approved a Complete Streets Policy for the National Capital Region that defines a Complete Street as a street that "safely and adequately accommodates motorized and non-motorized users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, freight vehicles, emergency vehicles, and transit riders of all ages and abilities, in a manner appropriate to the function and context of the facility.”

The policy provided a Complete Streets Guidance and Policy Template, and strongly encouraged TPB member jurisdictions and agencies to adopt their own Complete Streets policies.
