Next year, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) will roll out Plan Bay Area 2050. The Safe Routes Partnership is asking MTC to increase funding for the regional Safe Routes to School program, sustain the Spare the Air Youth Program, enforce the Complete Streets policy, add $100 million to the One Bay Area grants, and expand its commitment to equity. We hope you will attend Plan Bay Area meetings throughout 2020 and push for these commitments too.

Manteca is in the process of developing its general plan to guide how the city will grow. We recently recommended that Manteca include in its plan concrete ways it will improve bicycle and pedestrian access around schools, improvements in active transportaton data collection, and measurable goals on Complete Streets. We also urged the city to prioritize affordable transportation options as part of the environmental justice component of the general plan.
