What is the Ventura Active Transportation Plan?

The Ventura Active Transportation Plan will create a roadmap for priority projects and programs that will make walking, bicycling, and taking transit great choices for all people living, working, and visiting Ventura.

The Plan will be rooted in broad community support and call for active participation from the public, community stakeholders, partner agencies, elected officials, and City staff. In support of this effort, we will also work hard to connect with our low-income and minority households, homebound seniors, youth, young parents, and people who are familiar with what it's like to walk and bike in Ventura.

The Existing Conditions Report

What do Ventura's streets look like today?

The Existing Conditions report documents active transportation in Ventura today. It looks at the quality, safety, and connectivity of existing networks for people walking and bicycling. This report, along with input from community members like you, will help us develop recommendations in later phases of the Ventura Active Transportation Plan.

Walking

People walk for many reasons. We’ve identified areas throughout Ventura where there are opportunities to improve and enhance the safety of the walking environment by addressing missing sidewalks, curb ramps, and crosswalk markings especially near schools.

Biking

Bicycling in Ventura is popular among residents and visitors. There are currently several types of bicycle facilities throughout Ventura. Though the bicycle network provides for connectivity in some City neighborhoods, there are several identified gaps in connectivity, most notably east-west connections.

Taking Transit

Ventura is served by Gold Coast Transit District and Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC). Transit riders typically access stations by walking or bicycling, emphasizing the importance of safety surrounding transit stop areas.

Educational Forums

On Tuesday, August 10, the General Plan Team hosted a virtual informational session on mobility and transportation. The session featured an informative presentation from Deepak Kaushik of Iteris, the transportation lead for the General Plan Update, and Drusilla van Hengel of Nelson\Nygaard, the lead consultant for the Active Transportation Plan. The presentation covered existing mobility conditions, emerging mobility trends, and ways that the General Plan can address them. The presentation was followed by a Q+A and discussion.
