The short distances Americans travel for many of their daily trips make bicycling and walking a highly viable transportation mode. Nearly 40% of all trips are under two miles, a distance easily accomplished by bicycle or on foot by a reasonably physically fit adult or child. In addition, 80% of all trips people take are not for commuting to work, but are for other purposes, many of which do not necessarily demand a car to accomplish. However, while there is potential for many more people to bicycle and walk for transportation, the lack of a safe, direct and usable bicycle and pedestrian network often makes it difficult. Not unlike many regions across the state, and indeed the country, the Killeen-Temple region faces the challenge of a less than complete bicycle/pedestrian network. However, as will be discussed, many of the cities within the region are making significant strides toward improvement.
