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. The Rogue Valley Active Transportation Plan (RVATP) will identify regional active transportation networks within the Rogue Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization (RVMPO) that connect cities, transit, activity centers, and major locations for both employment and housing. The RVATP aims to identify missing links and barriers between key destinations to encourage the use of active modes of transportation and identify improvements to further promote their use in communities.

Why

The Rogue Valley recognizes the benefits of having safe, comfortable, and well-connected active transportation networks. Making it easier to walk and bike to reach destinations will help bring more people to these places and create a safe environment for everyone. Creating active transportation networks is vital for making the valley safer and more accessible to residents, employees and visitors. Improving active transportation options also help the entire transportation system perform better. This is particularly important as more people move to the region. Planning for the future will help meet the needs of the current population and accommodate future growth.
