Santa Barbara – Bicycle Master Plan

The community-driven Santa Barbara Bicycle Master Plan (also referred to as the SB BMP) outlines the goals, policies, and implementation strategies that will improve bicycle safety, convenience, facilities, and infrastructure in the City of Santa Barbara. The plan will also enhance and preserve Santa Barbara’s circulation system for all road users by increasing the number of trips taken by bicycle; reducing future traffic congestion levels and parking demand. The plan implements other General Plan goals and policies such as Healthy Communities and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction.

About The 2041 Regional Transportation Plan

Our region is growing quickly, and we must continue the work underway to ensure that people can get to where they need to go, today and in the future.

The 2041 Regional Transportation Plan – the 2041 RTP – is about providing even more people with access to fast, frequent and reliable transit, and making it easier for travellers to use transit, or travel by bike or on foot.
