View Executive Summary
This project is a set of recommendations to improve youth transportation in Pueblo County, Colorado. Working together, the Pueblo Associated Council of Governments and the Pueblo Department of Health and the Environment seek to improve access to prosocial activities for youth by improving the ways in which youth reach them. They had surveyed where youth wanted to go and what was stopping them from getting there but needed a set of recommendations to address the barriers. Utilizing guidance from the National Association of City Transportation Officials, case studies from other cities, and by studying the existing conditions of Pueblo, the project delivered four general recommendations with applications specific to Pueblo.
