When people walk, bike, scoot and skate — using what’s known as active transportation, or micromobility — they can travel short distances without relying on cars.

A diverse group of professionals at MTC are all working together to increase active transportation and micromobility throughout the region.

The Active Transportation Working Group brings together:

  • Staff from MTC and other public agencies
  • Public health professionals
  • Transportation advocates
  • Consulting firms
  • Mobility companies

Together, this cross-sectional group is working on active transportation and micromobility.

Meetings

The Active Transportation Working Group typically meets the third Thursday every other month. Its activities include:

  • Data collection and analysis
  • Planning, maintenance and funding
  • Marketing and outreach

Active Transportation Program

California’s Active Transportation Program taps state and federal funds to support programs that make walking and biking better travel options for Bay Area residents.

Bicycle, Pedestrian & Micromobility

MTC supports many programs that encourage people to get out of their cars and walk, bike or roll for an active, healthier community and environment.

Bicycle Working Group

The Bicycle Working Group was originally formed to implement MTC’s 2000 Regional Bicycle Plan. It later merged with the Pedestrian Working Group to form the Active Transportation Working Group, focused on Complete Streets, active transportation and micromobility.
