The Lawrence Pedestrian Coalition exists to realize completion of the pedestrian network in Lawrence, Kansas and ensure pedestrian access and safety throughout our community.

Everyone is a pedestrian at sometime during the day whether they are on foot, in a stroller, learning how to ride a bicycle, have mobility disabilities, or are just going to a motor vehicle. The Lawrence Pedestrian Coalition (PedCo) promotes a walk-able community in Lawrence, Kansas.

Lawrence faces many challenges. The sidewalk network is incomplete. Mass transportation needs to be integrated with other modes of transportation. New development should have more pedestrian-friendly designs. The aging population needs transportation options. The community, in general, needs to understand the advantages of walking and how to create an environment that encourages transportation choices. We support and encourage all efforts to address and overcome these challenges. Our meetings are open to the public. Please join us!
