CTP Overview

The Office of State Planning facilitates the development and preparation of the long-range CTP required by federal and State law. The CTP provides a common framework for guiding transportation decisions and investments by all levels of government and the private sector. Federal law and state law require the development and preparation of a state transportation plan. OSP also provides analysis and policy recommendations regarding current transportation issues and future trends.

  • Public Participation Plan

    The 2018 Public Participation Plan (PPP) update has been completed and this edition reflects changes in communication technologies and public outreach best practices, and addresses current compliance with state and federal laws and regulations that emphasize public engagement. The Plan is a living document and will undergo regular review and elevation to measure its continued effectiveness. Please click the above link to learn more about the PPP, as well as its development and background.

  • Future of Mobility

    OSP worked with the UC Berkeley's Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC) on the Caltrans Future of Mobility (FOM) study. The objective of this project was to explore the impact of technological, social, economic, and environmental change on Caltrans' long term planning process for transportation in California. The results from this study will ultimately be used to inform the scenario development for the CTP 2050. To learn more about this project, please visit our Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) webpage.

The California Transportation Plan (CTP) 2050 is the state’s long-range transportation plan that establishes an aspirational vision that articulates strategic goals, policies, and recommendations to improve multimodal mobility and accessibility while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
