SACRAMENTO - Caltrans invites the public to help shape the state's transportation future by offering input and comments on the California Transportation Plan 2040 (CTP 2040). The Plan lays out a vision for California's transportation future to provide mobility, support a vibrant economy and meet greenhouse gas emission reduction goals.

"The public can play a key role in the long-term vision we are creating for California's transportation system. Our population is growing, the way we live and move is changing, our transportation system needs evolving, and therefore our game plan needs to be forward-thinking."

Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty

The CTP 2040 envisions a fully integrated, multimodal and sustainable transportation system in California. Caltrans seeks public input to help ensure the CTP 2040 is fully consistent with the department's mission of delivering a low-carbon transportation system capable of meeting our goals of mobility, safety and sustainability.

The CTP 2040 supports Governor Brown's goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It will help meet goals consistent with California's existing commitment to reduce emissions 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050.

The development of the CTP is an open and collaborative planning process that includes early and continuous engagement with governmental agencies at all levels, the private sector, advocacy groups, community organizations, and the public.
