The City of Rochester has kicked off its Active Transportation Plan. If you are interested in getting involved, please email the City's project manager.

The Rochester Active Transportation Plan (Roc ATP) is an initiative to make Rochester streets safer and more accessible for people who walk, ride bikes, and/or take public transportation. 

This project centers equity by engaging and uplifting the voices of people who live and work in Rochester’s most misrepresented communities. This project kicked off during the summer of 2022 and will be complete by the summer of 2023.
