Bicycle, Pedestrian & Safe Routes to School
About the Plan
Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to School (BP-SRTS) is a regional plan for San Joaquin County that serves as a guide to planning, developing, and managing a regional bicycle and pedestrian network. The plan aims to increase commuter walking and bicycling, and support active and safe transportation to and from school.

During the first 20-year Measure K program, approximately $7.6 million in Measure K funds were awarded to bicycle projects throughout San Joaquin County. These projects included improving existing bicycle facilities and/or planning, developing, and construction new facilities. In November 2006, San Joaquin County voters approved the renewal of the Measure K for an additional 30 years. The renewal also expanded the existing Bicycle Funding Program to include pedestrian and safe routes to school projects.

Funding
Measure K funding for the BP-SRTS program is derived from 7% of the total Transit Category Funding, which represents 30% of the entire Measure K program. Of the funds available, 60% will be programmed through a competitive process and the remaining non-competitive 40% of funds will be made available for project delivery per a population based formula by individual jurisdiction.

The first Measure K Renewal BP-SRTS projects are anticipated to be identified through the 2012 Regional Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to School Master Plan.
