Creating a transportation system for everyone

SACRAMENTO – While the public’s perception of Caltrans may be limited to highway maintenance for automobiles, the latest Caltrans News Flash video shows how the department supports other modes of transportation within the state’s system.

Under the Active Transportation Program (ATP), Caltrans is partnering with local communities to develop and maintain safe, healthy, convenient travel options for people to use every day, and is broadening our scope of projects to benefit the many types of active transportation users.

Caltrans strives to meet the transportation needs for travelers of all ages, to give them safe mobility options, and provide access for non-drivers. By providing a safe and effective transportation system for all Californians, Caltrans is serving a wider transportation community and using funds to address the travel demands that motorists, transit riders, bicyclists and pedestrians face, while complying with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA).
