Active Transportation Working Group
MTC’s Active Transportation Working Group is working to get more people moving by foot, bike, skateboard, scooter, wheelchair and other forms of “active transportation” (also known as “micromobility”).
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.
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

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.
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.
