SB 1 PROGRAM GUIDELINES
The State is seeking public comment on the following program guidelines:
The Active Transportation Program (ATP) was created to encourage increased use of active modes of transportation. In 2017, SB 1 added approximately $100 million per year in available funds for the ATP. This will nearly double the amount of available funds for the Active Transportation Program.

SB 1 placed upon the California Transportation Commission (CTC) the responsibility to track performance of all SB 1 funded programs under its purview and report to the public how well recipients of SB 1 funds are delivering on promises made to the taxpayers. As such, the CTC is developing SB 1 Accountability and Transparency Guidelines.
