Unincorporated San Mateo County Active Transportation Plan
On February 9, 2021, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors approved the Unincorporated San Mateo County Active Transportation Plan (SMC ATP), a comprehensive framework to guide the development of active transportation projects and programs for walking, bicycling and other forms of human powered movement for people of all ages and abilities throughout unincorporated County communities.
The Plan builds on the County’s ongoing work across multiple County departments, adjacent jurisdictions and other public agencies to help ensure safe and seamless connected networks. Implementation of the program and policy recommendations included in the SMC ATP will support the development of a safer, more connected walking and biking network throughout the County’s unincorporated communities. It will also contribute to the County’s progress on goals relating to climate change and a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and social equity, addressing mobility needs of our most vulnerable community members.

The Plan is oriented around five goals: access, safety, equity, mode share, and flexibility. These goals were integrated into the Plan development process and will help guide the implementation of Plan recommendations to improve walking and bicycling conditions throughout the unincorporated areas of the County.
This Plan seeks to improve walking and bicycling in unincorporated San Mateo County by identifying hundreds of projects, as well as accompanying policies and programs. Project recommendations are made to improve connections to various destinations and respond to community needs to create a safe, connected on-street active transportation network. The graphic below highlights some of the types of recommendations in the Plan.
