Welcome to the Chicago Pedestrian Plan!

As a pedestrian in Chicago, you have the opportunity to view the city’s world class architecture, access the thousands of acres of parks, and experience the vibrant neighborhood street life in a way that no other mode of travel can offer.

The best way to enjoy Chicago is as a pedestrian.
Chicago’s pedestrian experience is one of the reasons that the city is such a great place to live, work, and play. To help ensure that Chicago continues to be a great city for pedestrians, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), in coordination with the Mayor’s Pedestrian Advisory Council (MPAC),collaborated together on the Chicago Pedestrian Plan. The Pedestrian Plan identifies new opportunities and ongoing initiatives that will strengthen Chicago’s already robust pedestrian environment. We hope that you will take to read the plan and learn about all of these efforts.
