The West Covina Active Transportation Plan (ATP) provides a vision and set of prioritized strategies and tools to enhance the City’s streets to be more comfortable, safe, and inviting to drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities. The ATP offers a balanced strategy for providing transportation alternatives (walking, bicycling, transit riding, or driving) in the public realm. The ATP was adopted by the City Council on May 15, 2018. Click here to access document.
Below are links to the public participation process which was an important component throughout the development of the ATP.
