Project Description:

Recognizing walking and bicycling as healthy; accessible and sustainable forms of transportation; the City of Bakersfield (City) proposes developing its first Active Transportation Plan (ATP Plan) for the metropolitan area; which includes updating our Bicycle Transportation Plan combined with targeted pedestrian and safe routes to school planning efforts. The ATP Plan will create an environment and develop programs that support walking and bicycling for transportation and recreation; encourage fewer trips by car; and support active lifestyles. Ultimately; the successful implementation of projects and activities described in the ATP Plan will improve air quality in the Valley portion of Kern County.
