Complete Streets + COVID-19

Across the country, communities and people are adapting to life amidst COVID-19.

The National Complete Streets Coalition is committed to advancing transportation systems that provide safe access for all users of all ages and abilities. We want to share and uplift strategies communities are using to respond to the unique circumstances brought on by this pandemic. We believe the following resources provide the best coverage of community responses to the crisis, and useful resources for decision makers and stakeholders hoping to move their communities forward.

COVID Morbidity Works has a robust tracker, with over 540 entries from 245 cities covering a range changes to the built environment, policies, procedures, pricing, and public outreach.

NACTO’s COVID-19: Transportation Response Center is an up-to date resource for city transportation staff, officials, and leaders during COVID-19. The page serves as a launching point for resources on rapid response measures, safe streets programs, implementation tools, and more!

Earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Complete Streets Coalition maintained an ongoing map that showed community responses to the crisis. The resource contained nearly 200 entries from cities across America and the globe related to Complete Streets and complete communities. Each action was sorted into one of the following categories:

    • Open streets
    • Micromobility
    • Curbside management
    • Emergency bicycle or pedestrian policy
    • Transit operation*
    • Community engagement**
    • Advocacy campaign**
    • Other

** Community Engagement and Advocacy Campaign fall under “other” as the map only itemizes the top five categories.
