Active Transportation Working Group | What Is MTC? | About MTC

Active Transportation Working Group

The Active Transportation Working Group has cross-sectional representation, including staff from MTC and other public agencies, public health professionals, transportation advocates, consulting firms and mobility companies, who are all working on active transportation and micromobility. The Bicycle Working Group was originally formed to implement MTC’s 2000 Regional Bicycle Plan, and later merged with the Pedestrian Working Group to form the Active Transportation Working Group, focused on Complete Streets, active transportation and micromobility.

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

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

For assistance, including information on upcoming meetings and joining the email listserv, please contact Regional Planning Program Section Administrator Elizabeth Bugarin at ebugarin@bayareametro.gov.

To make urban roadways more bike- and pedestrian-friendly, a new design approach known as Complete Streets has emerged to help ensure that people of all ages and abilities can use the street safely.
