Rogue Valley Active Transportation Plan

What

Active transportation refers to any form of human-powered transportation that engages people in healthy physical activity while they travel from place to place. People walking, bicycling, running, using wheelchairs/mobility devices, skateboarding, and rollerblading are engaged in active transportation.

Jackson County is serving as the lead agency in the development of the Rogue Valley Active Transportation Plan (RVATP). The purpose of the RVATP is to identify regional networks for active transportation that provide connections between cities and connections to transit, activity centers, and locations of major employment and housing.

Why

The Rogue Valley recognizes benefits of having a safe and complete active transportation system. Walking, bicycling, and accessing transit can enhance public health, improve access for people who cannot or choose not to drive, and improve the livability of our neighborhoods. The RVATP aims to identify the missing links and barriers between key destinations to encourage the use of active modes of transportation and identify improvements to further promote their use within and between Rogue Valley communities.
