The San Diego region is an amazing place for active transportation—walking, biking, rolling, and more. In collaboration with you, SANDAG develops a Regional Active Transportation Plan to improve walking and rolling infrastructure for daily travel and recreation. This plan outlines strategies to add more transportation options, support our local economy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help the San Diego region achieve state-mandated climate action goals.
Since adopting the Regional Bike Plan in 2010, the region has added 52 miles of multi-use paths, nearly 300 miles of bike lanes, 27 miles of separated bikeways, and seven miles of bike boulevards. These new bikeways have inspired regional interest in active transportation and highlighted a demand for better biking infrastructure.
The 2021 Regional Plan has a clear vision: invest in sustainable transportation options, especially transit and active transportation, to offer increased travel options while reducing our reliance on cars and cutting down on pollution. This vision shapes our projects, including the updates we are making to the Regional Active Transportation Plan and development of a new Regional Vision Zero Action Plan.
An update to the Regional Active Transportation Plan is needed to better align the regional bikeway network with the Regional Plan in addition to accounting for post-pandemic travel trends including the expanded reach of electric bikes. Some regional bikeway projects may also include safer walking improvements, traffic calming measures, and supporting amenities like secure bike parking.
SANDAG has launched an interactive portal for community feedback. You can provide suggestions for improvements, general comments, and view the feedback from other people across the region.
