The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County is developing an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) titled Walk and Roll Truckee Meadows and would like to hear from you. The ATP will identify policies, programs and infrastructure options to support active modes as a viable transportation choice in the region, especially for shorter trips.
- A survey and interactive map is currently open for you to provide input and feedback on issues that are important to you.
- You can also register for a virtual public meeting that will take place on Wednesday, May 24th at 5:30 pm.
About the ATP:
The Reno-Sparks area is experiencing significant growth and increased demand on the regional roadway network for all modes of transportation. Developments in technology and mobility sharing in the last decade have made micro-modes (bicycles, e-bikes, e-scooters) increasingly accessible and popular choices for active transportation. Investments in active transportation help create healthier communities and a more equitable transportation system by providing reasonable and safe alternatives to driving. Implementation of the ATP will enhance the quality of life in the region by providing opportunities to reduce vehicle emissions, encourage physical activity, activate street life, and create dynamic and connected communities.
