The Access Board plans to develop new accessibility guidelines specific to shared use paths (SUPs) designed for use by pedestrians, cyclists, roller skaters, skateboarders, and other non-motorized users. In addition to general recreational use, SUPs often serve a transportation purpose, providing a system of off-road transportation routes for users. The Access Board will hold a public information meeting in conjunction with the ProWalk/ProBike 2010 Conference to provide an opportunity for individuals with disabilities, designers of shared use paths, and those with expertise in this area to provide information to assist the Access Board in establishing accessibility guidelines for shared use paths.
