Active Transportation Plan

The Active Transportation Plan (ATP) was adopted by the Policy Board on July 18, 2019 (Resolution 2019-5). The purpose of the ATP is to identify policies, programs, and infrastructure projects to support non-motorized modes as a viable transportation option for shorter trip purposes. The plan serves as a resource for member governments to incorporate bicycle and pedestrian elements into roadway construction and maintenance; provides a menu of potential best practices, policies, outreach and educational activities to promote walking, rolling, and biking; and identifies regionally significant priorities for potential inclusion into the Metropolitan Transportation Plan and for federal or state funding eligibility. The ATP recommendations are framed in the context of the Six Es, a concept borrowed from the League of American Bicyclists and Safe Routes to Schools. The Six Es include: Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement,  Evaluation and Planning, and Equity.
