Urban Pathways to Healthy Neighborhoods: ConnectionsDownload

Urban Pathways Initiative (UPI) is a program of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy that advocates for equitable investment in vulnerable communities to promote the health, transportation and environmental benefits of trail use. UPI provides community-based assistance to groups and municipal agencies which promote or develop pathways intersecting low-income communities. Through case studies in Memphis, TN, Houston, TX, Compton, CA, and New Orleans, LA, this fact sheet explores different approaches to connecting urban pathways to bicycle and pedestrian networks, transit, parks and greenspace, and other community destinations.
