Citywide Transportation Plan
Redwood City’s strong economy, strategic location, and frequent Caltrain service have attracted a substantial amount of residential and commercial development over recent years. This, coupled with strong economic growth throughout the Bay Area, has resulted in increased traffic congestion and questions within the community about the impacts of development.
The Plan will work with the community to develop a framework for a balanced multimodal transportation network addressing the City’s transportation challenges and needs, and building off Redwood City’s already robust and sustainable transportation system.
For the Plan, we will collect data on...
- How the workers and residents get around
- Locations with high levels of traffic congestion
- Collision trends
- Parking needs and supply
- Bicycle, pedestrian, and transit routes
- Transportation programs from cities similar to RWC
To develop the Plan, we will seek community input on...
- Existing transportation concerns
- Visions for the future transportation network
- Ideas to serve the entire community, including children, elderly, people with disabilities, low-income residents, as well as workers and visitors
- Facilities and programs to best support walking, bicycling, and transit
- Prioritizing improvements to get the most “bang for our buck”
- Potential partnerships with new transportation modes, like Lyft and Uber
- Future transportation technologies, such as self-driving vehicles
