The Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee is an advisory committee of seven to nine volunteer citizens of South Burlington, who are appointed by the City Council. The mission of the committee is to oversee the general operation of the city's many recreational paths, including field trails and sidewalks, and to advise the City Council of operational needs and future development plans for the path network.
Part of South Burlington's Comprehensive Plan is to develope a safe and efficient transportation system that supports pedestrian, bicycle, and transit options while accommodating the automobile. Also establish a city center with pedestrian-oriented design, mixed uses, and public building and civic spaces that act as a focal point to the community.
South Burlington has nearly 24 miles of mulit-use paths to explore. The path is maintained year-round, and is almost always a wonderful place to enjoy some time outside walking, jogging, stroller pushing, dog walking, or bicycling.

Share the Road
The City is working with the Bicycle & Pedestrian Committee to promote a new initiative that was originally created by the Vermont Agency of Transportation. It is called: Share the Road.
As the City works to create a bikeable and walkable downtown, we feel it is important to remind all users that safety is a personal responsibility. There are many laws and rules that govern our roadways to provide us with a framework for safety and help guide us in the decisions we make on the road or rec path. We invite you to take a look at the VTrans Share the Road brochure, which highlights many of these laws and guidelines that will help make our community safer.
Whether you utilize the City’s infrastructure as a motorist, pedestrian, or bicyclist, please be mindful of others that are using the same infrastructure and remember to Share the Road.
All meetings are open to the public and are typically held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 5:30 pm at the City Hall Offices at 575 Dorset Street.
Agendas and Minutes for the South Burlington Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee are posted on Clerkbase under the South Burlington "Boards and Committees."
