The regional agency, which oversees distribution of more than $200 million in federal and state transportation funding, is currently developing a Regional Bicycle/Pedestrian Planning Study which includes a hike-and-bike master plan for the city of San Antonio and an inventory of condition in outlying cities such as New Braunfels and Seguin. The study will also include recommendations for filling gaps in the trail network that knits together San Antonio Missions National Historic Park.

People can take the survey online as well as flag problem areas for bikers and walkers on an interactive map. In addition to the survey, the agency will host public information meetings in coming months, including one planned for January in New Braunfels.
