Comprehensive Transportation Plan
Moving Forward 2050 is a transportation plan for a future with cleaner, safer and more efficient options. The SCTA is embarking on the next update of the Sonoma County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) to examine transportation needs and revisit our vision for transportation throughout Sonoma County.
A VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORTATION
The SCTA updates the CTP every five years to ensure that the plan is relevant, useful, and represents the community’s needs for transportation. The new plan, called Moving Forward 2050, will look at transportation and projects over the next 30 years. We need your input as we work to complete the updated plan by 2021. | Take the Survey

GET INVOLVED WITH THE CTP
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 needs for getting around Sonoma County.
The SCTA is hosting meetings to share updates on the next update to Sonoma County’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) and learn about local transportation needs. Please share your thoughts and hear about the plan at a library near you: Windsor, Mon 11/4, 6-7pm; Santa Rosa, Wed 11/6, 6-7pm; Petaluma, Mon 12/4, 6:45-7:45pm; and Sonoma, Mon 12/11, 6-7pm.
SCTA is also launching a webinar series to help explain what goes into the CTP and answer your question. We hope you will join us for the first webinar on Wed, 10/23 at 11am. The topic is Using travel models to understand how we move in Sonoma County.
GOALS OF THE 2040 COMPREHENSIVE TRANSPORTATION PLAN
1. Maintain the System
Roadway Condition – Improve countywide Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for arterial and collector streets to 80 (very good condition) by 2040. Improve countywide PCI for residential streets to 65 (good condition) by 2040.
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).
2. Relieve Traffic Congestion
Congestion Reduction – Reduce Person Hours of Delay (PHD) by 20% below 2005 levels by 2040.
3. 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.
4. 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 2040 (2010 – 8.38%).
Safety – Reduce total daily accident rates by 20% by 2040.
5. 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.
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.
TIMELINE FOR THE 2050 COMPREHENSIVE TRANSPORTATION PLAN
TRANSPORTATION PROJECT LIST
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):
