Comprehensive Transportation Plan:
Moving Forward 2050

A VISION FOR SONOMA COUNTY’S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

The Sonoma County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) examines the current state of transportation in the county, looks at future needs and goals, and provides information on how they can be met. The Plan serves as the vision for transportation throughout Sonoma County, with aspirational goals for the transportation system, as well as, the well-being of the communities.

The CTP is updated every four to five years to ensure that the plan is relevant, useful, and represents the current transportation needs and goals of SCTA and Sonoma County jurisdictions. A key element of the plan is a project list that includes all types of transportation related projects and services and provides documentation of our transportation needs, which is necessary to program future funding to projects.

SCTA is in the process of updating Moving Forward 2040, the last version of the CTP adopted in 2016. The updated CTP, Moving Forward 2050, is planned to be released by Summer 2021.

Transit System Condition – Reduce the average bus fleet age by 25% below 2010- 2012 average fleet age by 2040 (7.5 years for 2010-2012).

Relieve Traffic Congestion

Congestion Reduction – Reduce Person Hours of Delay (PHD) by 20% below 2005 levels by 2040.

Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Reduce GHG emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2040. Climate Action 2020 targets shall be incorporated into the CTP when they are finalized.

Plan for Safety and Health

Active Transportation Reduce drive alone mode share for all trip to 33.3% by 2040 (201 – 45%). Increase active transportation mode share (bike, walk, and transit) to 15% by 204 (2010 – 8.38%).

Promote Economic Vitality

Reduce transportation costs for business and residents – Reduce average peak period travel time per trip by 10% by 2040 (2010 – 11.31 minutes).

Provide equitable access – CTP projects should serve Communities of Concern. Average monthly household transportation costs have also been calculated and summarized for different projects and transportation policies/measures.

ENGAGE

Community input plays a key role in developing a successful CTP. There will be numerous opportunities to have your say and provide important information about your transportation needs. Get started by signing into our PlaceSpeak page and taking the survey.

MOVING FORWARD 2040 – PROJECT LISTS

The CTP includes transportation projects and programs that will enhance the transportation system over the next 30 years. It often takes many years, even decades, to build projects  – a key reason we must plan so far in advance. With the introduction of performance analysis, SCTA asked project sponsors to submit each project they anticipate implementing over the next 30 years, with as much project detail as possible.

The SCTA is continuing to work on establishing new projects and keeping the public up to date on the status of projects. We invite you to review the current list of projects (or explore more details through the following reports):
