2018  Regional Transportation Plan

The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a long range planning document that provides the framework for investments in roads, freeways, public transit, bikeways and other ways people move around our County for the next 25 years. It also helps us comply with State-mandated efforts to reduce greenhouse gases (SB375). The plan is accompanied by environmental and air quality documentation.
