In January 2019, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) through funding from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), initiated a Community-Based Transportation Plan (CBTP) in partnership with the City of Morgan Hill. The CBTP is focused on improving mobility options for the City of Morgan Hill with an emphasis on disadvantaged communities. CBTP brings residents, community organizations and transportation agencies together to identify low-income neighborhoods' most important transportation challenges and develop strategies to overcome them.
The resulting CBTP will be an essential tool for helping VTA and community proactively pursue projects when funding becomes available. Projects in the final plan can address important issues, including, but are not limited to bicycle and pedestrian connectivity, public transportation amenities, local roads & streets improvement, and integration of technology with transportation.
