The Solano Transportation Authority (STA) is updating the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP), which identifies and prioritizes the transportation needs and funding throughout Solano County through the year 2040. The current CTP 2030 was finalized in 2005 (see here for additional information).
STA needs your help in updating the CTP. STA is visiting locations throughout Solano County seeking input on the plan, so we hope to see you soon. Our goal is to submit a draft plan to the STA Board for approval before the end of 2016. Please visit www.solano2040.org to tell us your priorities and your ideas!
Programs and projects for the county and the seven cities must be listed in the STA CTP in order to be eligible for regional, state or federal transportation funds and to be included in the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), Plan Bay Area. STA distributes those funds based on the Solano CTP and Plan Bay Area. It is important that every resident of Solano County has the opportunity to have their voice heard in shaping STA's priorities.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS SINCE THE 2005 CTP INCLUDE:
Active Transportation (adopted in 2014):
Arterials, Highways, and Freeways (draft in progress in 2017):
Transit and Rideshare (adopted in 2017):
CTP AREAS OF COVERAGE
The CTP covers policies, programs, and projects for transportation in the seven cities (Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun City, Vacaville, Vallejo) and unincorporated Solano County. The CTP also covers inter-regional connections to neighboring counties and the northern California region.
