Star Report

Caltrans needs your input on the California State Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan questionnaire by November 6, 2016.

This visionary and comprehensive plan will focus on improving safety and access for everyone across all modes, particularly bicycle and pedestrian.

The public is encouraged to visit: www.cabikepedplan.org, to participate in an online (5-10 minute) questionnaire and sign up for email updates about new project information and outreach activities.

Public participation is critical to developing a Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan that strengthens bicycling and pedestrian safety and increases opportunities across the state. Caltrans is engaging a broad range of stakeholders through targeted outreach activities statewide to achieve wide participation.

When completed, the plan will provide a framework to guide the planning and development of non-motorized transportation on state facilities and maximize the use of future investments. It will also lead to improved connections between the state’s bicycle and pedestrian facilities with the existing network and other modes of transportation, as well as help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and vehicles miles traveled. This plan will not replace existing policies and implementation plans at the regional and local levels.
