Active Transportation

Active Transportation, otherwise referred to as non-motorized transportation, includes facilities that make it easier to travel by walking and bicycling. Included in this are bikeways (Class I, II, III), sidewalks, boardwalks and multiuse paths. It also includes categories often considered part of 'liveable communities' such as traffic control devices that make it easier for bicyclists and pedestrians and streetscape improvements like street trees, benches and other 'street furniture.'

SLOCOG has consistently taken a intermodal approach to transportation throughout our region. A recent state law and national movement for 'complete streets' concepts validate this multimodal approach. Providing facilities for all users (bicyclists, pedestrians, transit users, etc.) provides many benefits to the region: safety, health, reduction in congestion and vehicle generated emissions and a vital active community core.

SLOCOG 2021 Regional Active Transportation Plan

The 2021 Regional Active Transportation Plan is a compilation of Active Transportation corridor planning studies and technical reports addressing the San Luis Obispo County and seven cities which have been presented to the SLOCOG board. Integration of new material presented over the past year (Bike Barriers survey, Volunteer Bike Counts, Wayfinding efforts etc.) and yet to be presented information on Bicycle Collisions and Bicycle Tourism & Economic Vitality.
