Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BTPAC)
Background -- The Palm Beach TPA's Bicycle-Trailways-Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BTPAC) is responsible for advising and informing the TPA Governing Board regarding bicycle and pedestrian issues in Palm Beach County. Enactment of the 1984 Florida Bicycle Bill required all county and local municipal governments to give full consideration of the bicycle when planning and developing transportation. Florida became one of the nation's leaders in bicycle planning with the creation of a State Bicycle Office, Bicycle Coordinators in each FDOT District, and Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinators in a number of counties, including Palm Beach. In Palm Beach County, a bicycle-pedestrian advisory committee was formed in 1987, and later expanded to include greenway issues.
Meetings: Typically, meetings are held the first Thursday of most months. Meetings begin at 9:07 AM and are held in the 4th Floor Conference Room, Room 4E-12, next to the TPA office in the Vista Center at 2300 N. Jog Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33411. Check the website calendar and the meeting links below for the current meeting schedule. Meeting agendas and backup information are posted in advance of each meeting.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Study
The Palm Beach TPA conducted the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Study to formally analyze five years of pedestrian and bicyclist crash data in Palm Beach County and develop evidence based recommendations for safety countermeasures, educational strategies, and performance targets. The final Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Study was adopted by the TPA Governing Board at their February 2017 meeting.
Walk Friendly and Bicycle Friendly Community Designations

Bicycle Suitability Map & Facilities
In 2016, the TPA created a Bike Suitability Map for Palm Beach County that displays bicycle facilities on major roadways and categorizes them as, "Good", "Fair" or "Caution" based on the type of facility present, vehicle traffic, and posted speed. The reverse side of the Bicycle Suitability Map highlights Florida laws and practices for safe cycling.To obtain printed copies of this map, contact Nicholas Hernandez at NHernandez@PalmBeachTPA.org.
