Sacramento County is creating its very first Active Transportation Plan! The Plan will focus on walking, biking, and rolling (strollers, scooters, skateboards, shopping carts, etc.). Input from community members (like you!) will help us develop this Plan. We hope you will share your experiences, challenges, and vision of walking and biking with us. At the end of the project, the plan will have a list of project recommendations that will help the County:
- Solve infrastructure problems for people who walk, bike, and roll
- Create new routes for people to walk, bike, and roll
- Make walking and biking easier, safer, and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities

We need your input! Throughout the planning process, the County will organize a number of different events to listen to your feedback and to present ideas, data, and material to review and discuss. Pending shelter-in-place orders, we may also host pop-up outreach, where we will set up a table at an existing event to talk to the community. Details of upcoming events will be posted on the website and emailed to you if you sign up for our announcement list. Your participation helps shape how we plan for the future of bicycling and walking in Sacramento County.

Sacramento County Walk & Bike Photo Scavenger Hunt
Get involved with the Active Transportation Plan by completing the Photo Scavenger Hunt! The next time you go on a walk or bike ride around your neighborhood, to work, or to the store:
- Notice fun and challenging things about your walk or bike ride.
- Take pictures of as many of the targets below as you can.
- Email your completed hunt and your favorite photo(s) to ActiveTransportationPlan@SacCounty.net or upload to WalkBikeSacCounty.net.
Your photos might be posted on the Plan website!
Project staff will update this site regularly with materials for you to review. Materials to be published online for your review will include display boards, presentations, drafts, and the final report. We will look to the community to provide input and comments (both in-person, when possible, and online) throughout this process to ensure the Active Transportation Plan reflects the needs and desires of Sacramento County residents and commuters.
