WALKING IN GILBERT
Walking is the oldest and most basic form of transportation, as every trip begins and ends by foot. Sidewalks and crossings are the basic building blocks of a walkable and connected community. Sidewalk availability and street conditions - such as traffic speed, number of travel lanes, buffer zones, and presence of streetlights - directly impact how people feel when walking. Simply having a sidewalk doesn’t necessarily mean that people will feel comfortable walking on a street. In Gilbert today, there are over 824 centerline miles of sidewalks on Gilbert maintained streets.

In Gilbert today, there are 221 centerline miles of bike lanes and over 142 miles of shared use paths.
TRAILS IN GILBERT
Gilbert’s nearly 200 miles of multi-use trails play an important role within the Town’s transportation network by providing convenient, comfortable routes for people to walk, bike, ride, and roll.

In addition to providing recreation and transportation opportunities, trails also influence economic and community development.
