Biking & Walking

Edina is working hard to accommodate increased demand for biking and walking infrastructure and to make the City safer and more convenient for people of all abilities to get around by whatever mode of transportation they choose.


Edina is recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community.

Active Routes to School

The purpose of the Active Routes to School Plan (PDF) is to identify opportunities and priorities to increase walking and biking to schools, and develop an implementation plan for making improvements in these areas.

Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan

This plan guides development of biking and walking infrastructure in Edina, including bike lanes, shared lanes and sidewalks.

Projects - Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety Fund

The fund, generated via franchise fees on electric bills, pays for improvements and maintenance of Edina's non-motorized transportation network. This network includes sidewalks, trails, bikeways, pedestrian crossings and related signs and pavement markings.

Bike Rack Program

Through the PACS Fund, the City offers bike racks at half price to organizations to encourage bicycling for commuting, errands and other short trips. This program is open to:

  • Businesses
  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Multi-family residential complexes

The City will install the racks and pay for half the cost of purchase and installation. The property owner is responsible for any new concrete and site work required prior to installation, as well as future maintenance of the installed racks. Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact the Transportation Planner at 952-826-0440 for more information.
