What is the Ventura Active Transportation Plan?
The Ventura Active Transportation Plan creates a roadmap for priority projects and programs that will support our community by making walking, bicycling, and taking transit great choices for all people living, working, and visiting Ventura.
The Plan is rooted in broad community support and called for active participation from the public, community stakeholders, partner agencies, elected officials, and City staff. In support of this effort, we worked 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.

Past Community Engagement Efforts
In October 2022, the City of Ventura tested new street design options to explore potential improvements that make walking and biking safer.
Temporary demonstrations gauge how potential treatments affect people walking, bicycling, rolling, and driving. Data collected from the demonstration will help in future street design treatments.
We hosted a virtual citywide workshop on Thursday, February 17, 2022 to discuss the project goals to help prioritize how the City should invest in walking and biking. Thank you for sharing how you feel about walking, biking, and rolling!

Community Survey, Focus Group, and Pop-up Summary
In Fall 2021, we completed our first phase of community engagement with an online survey and interactive map, focus groups, and pop-up events. View a summary of each below.
We asked people to share their experience and vision for walking, biking, and accessing transit through an online survey.
Focus Group and Pop-up Summary
We conducted focus groups and hosted pop-up events in the community to supplement the survey findings. We specifically invited people with different cultural, racial, and other demographic identities to better understand their lived experiences related to walking and bicycling in Ventura.
In October 2021, we partnered with Bike Ventura to host two community bike rides on the Westside. Mayor Sofia Rubalcava joined approximately 30 participants to talk with more than 70 residents about the project and hear about their vision for active transportation in Ventura. Check out the video!
