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 projects, non-infrastructure projects and Plans to further these goals. Please visit the Caltrans ATP web site for information on program solicitations, deadlines, guidance, and procedures.
Information on specific ATP topics, view the ATP Flash Training Tutorials.
While the Active Transportation Program has successfully funded projects across the State, the Program is incredibly oversubscribed and cannot meet all of the State’s needs. Therefore, the Commission and Caltrans have developed a list of additional programs that fund active transportation projects and elements to serve as a resource for cities, counties, and agencies looking to fund valuable active transportation projects in their communities.
