The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center is funded by the Federal Highway Administration and housed within the UNC Highway Safety Research Center in Chapel Hill, NC.

Since its inception in 1999, the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center’s mission has been to improve the quality of life in communities through the increase of safe walking and bicycling as a viable means of transportation and physical activity. To support this mission, the PBIC:

  • Develops, synthesizes, promotes and distributes accurate and current bicycling and walking information.
  • Provides expert technical assistance to various audiences to ensure that citizens and professionals have access to the best available information.
  • Generates a network of informed individuals and organizations who can increase the exposure of ped/bike issues to the general public.

To accomplish that mission, the PBIC manages several websites, produces a variety of reports, guides and case studies, and offers training and technical assistance.
