Pedaling the Pueblo – Updates on the Pima County Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Program

Pima County’s website states that “[it] is dedicated to improving safety and access for walkers and cyclists.” The County hosts many programs that are aimed at getting more people walking and biking and doing so safely. Bike Buddy, Safe Routes to School, Adult Education and Diversion classes are just a few of the services provided by the County to support people walking and biking.

Recently, much of this program shifted from the Department of Transportation to the Health Department. Why? You’ll have to listen to the interview to find out the answer to that question, as well as what this new arrangement will bring to the County’s emphasis on safety.

Pedaling the Pueblo – Updates on the Pima County Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Program


Pedaling the Pueblo is a mini-program and podcast that connects people to news and information about Tucson’s bicycle culture. A collective of bicycle enthusiasts host and produce weekly programs covering a wide variety of topics. From community events to questions about how bicycle funding works; tips to start riding more to interviews with local bicycling legends, Pedaling the Pueblo explores life on two wheels from a “people first” approach, allowing us all to have an open dialogue about how people move through our shared built environment.

Content is responsive to and driven by the community, so if you have a question or topic you’d like to hear covered, email us at ptp@kxci.org. You can also find us on Facebook.
