The Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Tompkins County. The ITCTC is charged with facilitating county-wide transportation planning. Go to our "About" webpage for more information about who we are and what we do.
It's summer! Don't forget to pick up the (free!) ITCTC Ithaca & Tompkins County Bicycle Map. Please call the ITCTC at 607-274-5570 to reserve a case or more; small amounts can be picked up on a walk-in basis by visiting the ITCTC office Monday through Fridays, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
PLEASE NOTE: Be alert and bike safely. Spring of 2015 flood damage to roads, particularly in Enfield and Newfield, is not reflected in the Tompkins County Bicycle Map.
The ITCTC has produced a map of the Complete Streets Network identified by its Planning Committee. The map shows a well coordinated network of roads for the urbanized area of Tompkins County. A ‘Complete Street’ is a street designed and operated to enable safe access for all users regardless of their mode of transportation, so that pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists or public transportation users of all ages and abilities are able to move safely along and across it.
The NYS Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations has produced a fact sheet, "Know Your Pedestrian and Bicycle Laws". This sheet provides a brief summary of laws for pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles; it also includes additional resources and references.(click here for print version)
