Why do Complete Streets matter? Complete Streets are safe, comfortable, and convenient for travel for everyone, regardless of age or ability—motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and public transportation riders. With simple changes to the way we view and design our roads, we can make sure that everyone is safer, no matter where they’re going or how they’re getting there.
