Active Transportation Program


Active Transportation Program (ATP)
El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba Counties

Pursuant to California Senate Bill 99 (Chapter 359, Statutes of 2013) and Assembly Bill 101 (Chapter 354, Statutes of 2013), the Active Transportation Program (ATP) was created to fund bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects. The ATP combines many federal and state funding streams previously used for bicycle, pedestrian, safety, and other related purposes into one funding stream with broad eligibilities.

To see all projects and programs funded by ATP, check out the SACOG ATP Mapping site. The next call for projects will be in 2018.

ATP Augmentation

The Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Program (SB 1) makes $100 million annually for the Active Transportation Program starting in state fiscal year 2017/2018. CTC drafted an approach to be reviewed and adopted on June 28 that proposes using the new funding to advance projects awarded funds through ATP Cycle 3, and to fund projects that applied through Cycle 3 but were not awarded. (Draft ATP Augmentation Guidelines)

Information on the Regional ATP Augmentation Approach will be available in late July.

Cycle 3 Results

Almost $18 million was awarded to the Sacramento region through the State and Regional ATP competitions. More information on the projects is available on the Past ATP Award Recipients page.
