Active Transportation Working Group

The Active Transportation Working Group includes staff from MTC and other public agencies, public health professionals and bicycling advocates who work together to implement our Regional Bicycle Plan.

The Working Group typically meets every other month. Its activities include:

  • Data collection and analysis
  • Marketing and outreach

This group also collaborates with transit operators to provide bike parking at stations.

A new design approach known as Complete Streets has emerged in recent years to make streets and roads more bike- and pedestrian-friendly.

While there is no standard template, common elements typically include:

  • Bike lanes
  • Sidewalk bike racks
  • Transit stops
  • Pedestrian signals
  • Street  trees
  • Curb ramps

By incorporating these elements into Complete Streets, transportation agencies help ensure that people of all ages and abilities can use the streets safely.

How many of your neighbors bike to work? Visit our interactive (and addictive) website, Vital Signs, to get current stats.

The Regional Bicycle Plan was developed through a collaboration among MTC staff, local agencies, bicycle advocacy groups and interested Bay Area residents.

City and county planners use the Regional Bicycle Plan as a tool to help shape local decisions about bicycle routes and facilities.
