District 10 Bicyclist Pedestrian Advisory Committee

BPAC logo

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) adopted the Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan: Toward an Active California in 2017 and the Mode Share Action Plan 2.0 in 2020, demonstrating a deep commitment to plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain walk and bike facilities across the state for people of all ages and abilities. District 10 has identified a need for regular input from diverse members representing walk and bike interests from all ages and abilities to support this work and established the D10 Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee (D10 BPAC) for that purpose.

 

The D10 BPAC provides strategic input, technical guidance, and process improvement recommendations to support achievement of the walk and bike safety objectives and multimodal network strategies in the 2020-24 Caltrans Strategic Plan. The committee also guides implementation of the Caltrans Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan: Toward an Active California at the District level, through the lens of the District 10 Caltrans Active Transportation (CAT) Plan. The D10 BPAC goals align with Caltrans core values: Engagement, Equity, Innovation, Integrity, and Pride.

 

D10 BPAC goals

1. Solicit technical and non-technical input from internal and external stakeholders and partners to guide implementation of the Statewide Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan: Toward an Active California, the District 10 CAT Plan, and the 2020-24 Caltrans Strategic Plan.

2. Identify opportunities for equity and environmental justice, and to re-connect communities where transportation facilities have created community barriers.

3. Provide recommendations to improve the safety of walking, bicycling, and first-/last-mile transportation.

4. Provide transparency to Caltrans infrastructure projects.

5. Provide technical and community-based knowledge of facilities and programs that successfully meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities who walk, bike, and use other forms of first-/last-mile transportation, and that create conditions that enable more people to walk and bicycle often.

6. Provide input on program development, prioritization, and implementation of active transportation projects and safety measures for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other first-/last-mile travelers.

 

7. Propose updates to Caltrans standards and guidance related to walking, bicycling, and first-/last-mile transportation.

 

8. Endorse strategies that align with proposals in local regional transportation plans (RTPs) and active transportation plans (ATPs).

 

9. Coordinate funding strategies for maintenance of active transportation facilities.

 

10. Follow consistent policy on developing projects identified in the CAT Plan, the State Highway System Management Plan (SHSMP), 10-year SHOPP, District System Management Plan (DSMP), and corridor plans.
