Active Transportation Plan




Project Description

The Active Transportation Plan (ATP) is a city-wide plan that will provide a clear and comprehensive framework for new and safer connectivity of non-motorized transportation options throughout the City.  Ultimately, the ATP will become a part of the Circulation Element of the City of Fontana's General Plan.
 The ATP Plan will:
  • Identify opportunities and challenges for implementation of improvements
  • Recommend improvements to existing city-wide bicycle and pedestrian pathways
  • Propose new bikeways, pedestrian walkways, Safe Routes to School networks, and close existing gaps
  • Establish on-going maintenance programs for these non-motorized pathways
  • Create a Bicycle Master Plan
  • Create a Pedestrian Master Plan
  • Create a Trail Master Plan
  • Provide a comprehensive project list from which a priority list of 20 project locations and an implementation plan will be created
  • Provide a "Best Practices" toolkit for implementation of all identified non-motorized transportation facilities
  • Design Standards which will include standard cross sections

The ATP Process

The project schedule for the Active Transportation Plan is as follows:

October 2016 - Public Outreach has been completed.  The City received comments and input from the public through surveys and through several City events. 
 June 2017 - We will have a draft
Active Transportation Plan for review and comment.

August 2017 - We will have a final draft plan for City Council Adoption.

Community Feedback

The Fontana ATP team tabled at the Sunset on Sierra event, which took place on July 30th, 2016. The event was coordinated in partnership with Go Human, a campaign to promote traffic safety and encourage more people to walk and bike in Southern California. An estimated 8,000 people were in attendance. Of these 8,000 attendees, 151 participated in a survey asking them what they would suggest to make our streets safer and more complete. Each of these suggestions had strong support.

Complete Streets

The Active Transportation Plan (ATP) will provide recommendations to implement Complete Streets improvements. These improvements provide safe, convenient access for all users including motorists, bicyclists, transit operators and users, and pedestrians of all ages and abilities.

Existing Conditions

The City of Fontana currently lacks bicycle lanes, and many streets have missing sidewalks and obstructions.
