For the first time in 20 years,  Bike Florida  visited Brevard County during its Sand and Stars Tour. The tour partnered with the  City of Titusville, Florida - Gateway to Nature and Space  and  Launch From Here Titusville to coordinate the event.

Video Feature : March is  #FLBikeMonth ! The SCTPO often holds bike rodeos, which are one day safety clinics that are designed to teach children safety skills and the rules of the road.

The SCTPO has prepared a draft Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for the upcoming fiscal years 2019 and 2020 (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2020).
 
The UPWP describes and lists the transportation planning activities to be conducted by the SCTPO over the next two years. It includes a proposed budget and identifies the work tasks that will be accomplished using federal transportation planning funds.
 
The draft UPWP is submitted to state and federal agencies for review, along with local agencies involved in transportation. Upon approval, the UPWP becomes the basis for the award of the TPO planning grant funds for the upcoming fiscal years.
