Active Transportation

Overview

Active Transportation

Active transportation refers to human-powered transportation, such as walking, cycling, using a wheelchair, in-line skating, or skateboarding. It is a critical component in developing and implementing sustainable community strategies, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing public health and making the six-county Sacramento region a more enjoyable place to live, work and play. As of 2015, the Sacramento region is home to over 480 miles of multi-use paths, 1,100 miles of bike lanes, and 300 miles of bike routes — all of which are used for transportation and recreational purposes.

SACOG serves as a forum for bicycle and pedestrian planning activities throughout the region to enable information flows regarding best practices, lessons learned, and sharing innovations for new projects and programs in the region. The SACOG Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee meets quarterly at SACOG. To sign up for meeting agendas, visit our notification page.
