Document Description
The primary goal of this project is to initiate a community planning process that will provide recommendations based upon data collection and community input. It is our goal that the community planning process will yield an Active Transportation Plan that will offer guidance to future projects throughout the park. Capitalizing on Expo's cultural significance for the region, as well as the rail and bus access on site, we will create an ATP that offers input towards needed improvements in access, increases biking and pedestrian trips in and around the park, safer linkages between pedestrian routes, public transit and biking trails and meaningful input from the community. The project seeks to support the alleviation and reduction of growth in vehicle miles traveled to and around the park in the coming years and to support Governor Brown's zero emission goals. A growing number of tenants and large events will increase travel to Expo and we are at a critical moment where we must plan for a large impact by promoting biking and walking, improving links between transit modes and improving safety and wayfinding to make multi-modal travel more feasible.
