Over $24 Million in SB 1 Funds in our region
SB 1 Active Transportation Funds Awarded

Senate Bill 1 brings the Sacramento region an additional $24,436,000 in new transportation funding through the 2017 California Active Transportation Program. The additional funding was approved on October 18 by the California Transportation Commission. The funding will provide money to active transportation projects across the region to provide safe and inviting active transportation amenities for more residents.


Regional Progress Report

The Regional Progress Report is a report on key indicators useful for understanding changes in the region’s economic growth, development, and travel over the last several years. Transportation and travel have implications and impacts on many aspects of the economy, quality of life, and the environment. The amounts, locations, and types of housing and job growth are important variables for understanding how a transportation system serves businesses and residents in the region and guiding decisions on how to invest in that system.
