Your best source of information for all bicycle and pedestrian related activities
Bike/Walk Tampa Bay (BWTB) is a regional coalition of citizens, advocates, professionals, and allied organizations created to make walking and bicycling the preferred modes of transportation in the Tampa Bay region. The Coalition was formed by a partnership between the New North Transportation Alliance, the Tampa Downtown Partnership, the Westshore Alliance, the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership, the Florida Department of Transportation, the Community Traffic Safety Teams of Tampa Bay, and the Hillsborough and Pinellas Metropolitan Planning Organizations. To accomplish this goal, we engage and empower local communities and stakeholders to achieve our region’s vision for a better transportation future.
