Comprehensive Biking and Walking

Active Transportation Program Funding

The Active Transportation Program (ATP) was created by Senate Bill 99 (Chapter 359, Statutes of 2013) and Assembly Bill 101 (Chapter 354, Statutes of 2013) to encourage increased use of active modes of transportation, such as biking and walking. In 2017, the Road Repair and Accountability Act (Senate Bill 1) added approximately $100 million per year in additional funds for the program. The ATP is administered jointly by the California Transportation Commission (CTC) and Caltrans. Program funding is awarded in two stages, beginning with a statewide competition led by Caltrans, followed by a regional competition led by SANDAG.

Cycle 5 (2021 ATP)

On March 25, 2020, the CTC approved the program guidelines for the 5th Cycle of the ATP and released the statewide call for projects. Applications for the statewide competition are due on September 15, 2020.

Links to the ATP Guidelines and electronic applications can be found on the Caltrans ATP Cycle 5 website.

All applicants of the statewide call for projects will automatically be considered for the Regional ATP. New this cycle, eligible applicants at the regional level may submit an application to only the Regional ATP without having submitted an application to the statewide competition.

On March 27, 2020, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the submission of the proposed Regional ATP guidelines to the CTC for use in the regional competition. The CTC will consider the Regional ATP Guidelines at its May 24-25, 2020 meeting. Then SANDAG will release the regional call for projects. Applications for the regional competition will be due September 30, 2020.

More information on the Regional ATP will be provided as it becomes available.
