Regional Transportation Planning

Since the mid-1970s, with the passage of Assembly Bill 69 (AB 69, Chapter 1253, Statutes of 1972) California state law has required the preparation of Regional Transportation Plans (RTPs) to address transportation issues and assist local and state decision-makers in shaping California's transportation infrastructure.

On July 1, 2009, the California Transportation Commission (Commission), upon consultation with the California Air Resources Board and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), formed an Advisory Committee to prepare necessary revisions to the Commission's RTP Guidelines in response to the requirements of Senate Bill 375 (SB 375, Chapter 728, Statutes of 2008) and other factors. As required by Government Code Section 14522.1(a) (2), the Commission's Advisory Committee included representatives of the metropolitan planning organizations, Caltrans, organizations knowledgeable in the creation and use of travel demand models, local governments, and organizations concerned with the impacts of transportation investments on communities and the environment.

The 2010 RTP Guidelines, adopted by the Commission in April 2010, incorporated new planning requirements as a result of SB 375 and incorporated the addendum to the 2007 RTP Guidelines.
