2013 Regional Transportation Plan

The San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is currently developing the 2013 update to its Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). This plan is being jointly developed by MTC and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG). The 2013 RTP Update is a “first” in that it incorporates a new Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) element to the RTP, as required under Senate Bill 375.

The SCS will be developed in partnership among regional agencies, local jurisdictions, and Congestion Management Agencies (CMAs) through an iterative process.  The land use pattern of the SCS, when integrated with the transportation system, should reduce greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles and light trucks as measured against regional targets established by the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

For current information on the 2013 RTP Update and the SCS, including meeting schedules, agendas, and recent publications, go to www.OneBayArea.org.
