January 9, 2023

The SBCTA Board of Directors, at their January 4, 2023 meeting, approved a list of various projects countywide for submittal to the State Active Transportation Program (ATP) cycle 6. The State ATP was created in 2013 to support a variety of non-vehicle transportation projects. Eligible pedestrian and bicycle projects include safe routes to schools, trails, sidewalks, bike lanes and mobility planning. State ATP funding is distributed in two ways, 60% by competitive grants awarded by the California Transportation Commission and 40% awarded through Metropolitan Planning Organizations to counties based on population.
