Active Transportation Working Group

The purpose of the Active Transportation Working Group is to receive comments and recommendations regarding the active transportation component of the 2016-2040 RTP/SCS. In addition, the workshops will detail SCAG’s many active transportation activities. SCAG is seeking ways to collaborate with local jurisdictions in the planning, funding and implementation of regional active transportation solutions. As many active transportation funding opportunities are through federal and state grants, collaboration is critical for any project that crosses political jurisdictions. These workshops are intended to help foster that collaboration.
