Document Description
State and federal laws require regional transportation planning agencies to prepare and adopt a Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and to adopt RTP updates every 5 years. The RTP is a regional transportation planning document that includes a long-term (20 year) horizon that reflects regional needs, a twenty-year transportation improvement plan, and short-term improvements. Regional issues and problems are identified and alternative solutions incorporating all modes of travel are developed and evaluated. The physical and operational requirements of all modes of transportation are considered including automobile, truck, transit, bike, rail, pedestrian, plane, marine, and freight and passenger rail. Projects in the local option sales tax renewal, Measure A, are also evaluated. Finally, the RTP recommends a comprehensive solution that provides direction for programming decisions that meet identified regional transportation needs. The objective of the Santa Barbara County RTP is to provide for a comprehensive transportation system of facilities and services that meets the public's need for the movement of people and goods, and that is consistent with the social, economic, and environmental goals and policies of the region.
