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 (State and Regional, Cycles 1-3), check out the SACOG ATP Mapping site.
