California Freight Mobility Plan (Final DRAFT)

The California Freight Mobility Plan (CFMP) draft has been released for review and is available on this webpage. While reviewing the document, please focus on making substantive, comments only. To track and respond to comments as efficiently as possible, we have developed a Comment Template. Please use this document to submit your comments. Email the completed Comment Template to

The due date for CFMP Final Draft comments is December 19, 2014.

This is the final draft, so there will not be additional opportunities to comment after December 19, 2014. As stated in the CFMP, it is essential that there are consistent freight policies and programs across State agencies.  To ensure compatibility, the document will be updated in the future to incorporate the Air Resources Board’s Sustainable Freight Strategy(SFS), federal freight planning rule making, and other emerging and overlapping priorities.  It is anticipated that the update will be issued in late 2015 or early 2016, depending on the SFS timeline and developing circumstances.

If you would like to receive notifications regarding the CFMP and the ongoing process, please email to be included on the mailing list.
