County Executive, Adam Bello:

Active transportation, such as walking, biking, and using mobility devices, benefits our health, environment, and economy and makes our community more accessible, equitable, and inclusive. The Countywide Active Transportation Plan will outline goals and strategies to enhance safety, connectivity, and transit access; and guide the County to advance active transportation infrastructure and promote active transportation to be an integral, convenient, safe part of daily life in Monroe County for residents and visitors of all ages and abilities.

Monroe County and the Genesee Transportation Council have partnered in an effort to develop a Countywide Active Transportation Plan (CATP) for Monroe County. The CATP will provide the County with an equity-focused, data-driven framework for achieving desired changes to the County's non-motorized transportation network. This may include recommendations for new or revised policies, tools for decision-makers, and/or transportation infrastructure investments.

The Monroe County CATP will build upon recent and ongoing transportation planning initiatives, including, but not limited to, the City of Rochester Comprehensive Access Mobility Plan (2020), Monroe County Complete Streets Policy (2020), County's "Carrie Ray’s 3-Foot Passing Law" (2021), Reconnect Rochester's "Transportation and Poverty in Monroe County” (2018), multiple town/village-scaled Active Transportation Plans, and the concurrent development of the Rochester Active Transportation Master Plan. In addition to incorporating these efforts, the Plan will aim to strike a balance between several community planning priorities, including racial equity/social justice, sustainability, and accessibility. A central goal of the Monroe County CATP is to identify equitable active transportation solutions and provide a roadmap for the County to improve the active transportation infrastructure.

"Active transportation" is a means of travel that is powered by human energy -  primarily walking and bicycling - or facilitated by public transportation systems. The term “active transportation” expresses the key connection between healthy, active living and our transportation choices.
