In 2013, California created the Active Transportation Program (ATP) with the goal to encourage increased use of active modes of transportation such as walking and biking throughout the state. The ATP provides funding to communities throughout California to support infrastructure and education projects to further these goals.
The Active Transportation Resource Center’s (ATRC) mission is to assist California’s communities, tribal areas, and schools with resources, technical assistance, and training to help implement active transportation projects.
The ATRC is funded by an ATP grant to the California Department of Transportation - (Caltrans). Caltrans and the ATRC have also partnered with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Sacramento State College of Continuing Education (CCE) to assist in providing the resource center needs.
