Metro Area Pedestrian Advocacy

Legacy Web Page

MetroPed was initially established in 2002 to provide technical support for 'The Safe Crossing Campaign' The SCC was slowly deprecated as the issues were addressed by both State and local government policy and planning.

Many organizations promoted fitness. MetroPed took a different tack. It advocated for removing impediments to outdoor fitness. MetroPed's Public Restroom Initiative (PRI), was established to shed light on the hesitation some people have to participating in outdoor fitness activities that put them out of range of proper sanitation facilities. The mission scope of the PRI was too limited to handle the massive national and even global support it gained. It was re-established as a stand-alone 503.c3 non-profit corporation call the American Restroom Association.
