Countywide Active Transportation Plan (CATP)

Monroe County Countywide Active Transportation Plan

  • 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.

‚ÄčThe 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.
