2019 Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals Conference

August 25 - August 28

Join over 300 active transportation professionals and advocates at the biennial APBP 2019 from Aug 25 – 28 in Portland, Ore – one of the most multimodal cities in America. In addition to national stories and perspectives, you’ll be getting the low-down on some of most successful active transportation programs in the Portland metro region – including our Vision Zero “Twenty is Plenty” initiative; protected bike lanes and greenways; and innovative parking reform.

The APBP Local Host Committee is pulling together over 40 sessions, workshops, and mobile tours around the city. They’re excited to showcase over 350 miles bike lanes, integrated transit options, and our newest bridge: the Tilikum Crossing. It’s the first bridge of its kind in the U.S., carrying lightrail, buses, streetcars, cyclists and pedestrians over the Willamette River. Note – no cars.

You think you know Portland, but this conference will go deeper than just bike boulevards and car-free bridges. Major programs (including Sunday Parkways, Safe Routes to School, and SmartTrips) have been managed by the City for over a decade; we’ve been installing bike parking quietly but relentlessly for even longer; and our pedestrian accommodation policies for construction sites has transformed our streets. Come tour North America’s biggest valet bike parking; new enhanced arterial bikeway crossing strategies; invisible yet powerful signal magic; and Better Naito (a resident-led tactical urbanism project that has become an annual tradition).
