About the 2045 Active Transportation Plan
The 2045 Active Transportation Plan is a long-range planning document that describes our region’s vision for enhancing pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure within the eight-county region.
The plan was developed with guidance from the Pedestrian-Bicyclist Subcommittee and was passed by the Transportation Policy Council in May 2019. It supports the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), a long-range, multi-modal transportation plan that guides investment in all types of transportation infrastructure throughout the Houston-Galveston area.
In addition to a vision document, the plan also serves as a toolbox for H-GAC and the Pedestrian-Bicyclist Subcommittee to prioritize and implement the recommendations outlined in the plan.
Why do we need an Active Transportation Plan?
Everyone uses active transportation, whether they are walking to school, using a wheelchair to get to a transit stop, biking to work, or pushing a stroller to the grocery store.
As the region adds more than 4 million new residents over the next 30 years, well-planned walkways and bikeways will keep all road users safe and will act as relief valves for our congested roadway network.
