Whether you are a casual or advanced rider, a bike commuter, a bicycle tourist, or a bicycle transportation professional, we have valuable information on bicycling in Montana.
Plan a Bicycle or Pedestrian Event
If you are planning a pedestrian or bicycle event MDT has safety signs that can be lent out for approved events.
MDT's Mission is to serve the public by providing a transportation system and services that emphasizes quality, safety, cost effectiveness, economic vitality, and sensitivity to the environment.
Most Montanans are pedestrians at one time or another every day - the moment you leave your home, office, or vehicle, you become a pedestrian. Whether you are walking to increase physical activity, for transportation, recreation, or are a pedestrian transportation professional, we have useful information for walking in Montana.
