What's the plan for our transportation system?

Every four years, the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Plan is updated to analyze highway, local road, bus, bicycle, pedestrian and other transportation system needs for the next 20-25 years.

While the commission is the lead agency, broad participation in the development of the document helps make the plan reflective of community values about how we will get around in the future.

Balancing our extensive transportation needs with very limited funds is a challenging task. The Draft 2014 Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Plan incorporates a sustainability analysis to identify transportation investments that improve access, mobility, the environment, public health, safety, the economy, equity and preserve our existing transportation system, all within financial constraints.
