Santa Clara County is creating an Active Transportation Plan! The Plan will focus on improving walking, bicycling, and rolling (i.e., wheeled mobility devices used by people with disabilities, strollers, scooters, skateboards, etc.) along county-controlled expressways and roadways in the unincorporated areas of the County. This Plan is being developed to:

  • Improve Public Safety: Provide safer and comfortable environment for non-motorized users on County roads
  • Provide a Consistent Active Transportation Network: Consistency biking/walking/rolling facility along the roadway facilities for the benefit of both active transportation users and motorists, to the extent possible
  • Increase Mobility: Encourage walking, bicycling, and rolling while providing a smoother environment for transferring to/from other modes and destinations
  • Benefit Public and Environmental Health: Provide a healthy, safe, and convenient transportation experience that encourages regular physical activity especially among vulnerable or underserved populations, to the extent possible

Feedback and input from the community will guide the development of the Plan. Please share your experiences, challenges, and vision for walking, biking, and rolling with us.

At the end of the project, the Plan will have a list of prioritized improvements and supporting programs to help improve Active Transportation in Santa Clara County.
