Make Vision Zero a reality in California.
Over 3,500 people died on streets in California in 2017, the second most of any state in the country, and an alarming proportion of those killed (28%) were people walking and biking. Confronting this trend demands design, policy, and culture shifts in cities and the State. CaCTI is building support for a range of reforms and policy changes at the State level to make all California streets safer, including local authority over speed-setting, use of automated enforcement, and collecting detailed crash data to better inform planning for transportation safety and public health.
Use high quality, standardized mobility data to manage city streets for the digital age.
Data is the foundation of 21st century transportation systems. New transportation technologies operating on city streets has resulted in a multitude of new data streams about the use and performance of city streets. Cities must be able to leverage this data to support sustainable, accessible, and affordable mobility for all. CaCTI advocates for cities to have access to available data on city streets, from public and private providers, in an accessible, anonymized format.
Integrate emerging mobility technology into cities’ transportation networks.
Mobility options in California’s cities are significantly different today compared to just a few years ago. New technologies such as on-demand ride-hailing, scooter share, and other mobility services increasingly make up the landscape of urban transportation. As many cities face declining transit ridership and increasing congestion, CaCTI members seek to leverage and regulate new technology to promote vibrant urban environments and a functional public right-of-way.
Promote autonomous vehicle (AV) policies that enhance safety, sustainability, and mobility.
The introduction of AVs could result in dramatically different outcomes for street traffic safety, the labor market, the built environment, and everyday mobility. In addition to ensuring AVs follow local traffic laws and meet State safety standards, CaCTI supports AV policies that ensure this new technology complements existing transit infrastructure and improves first-mile-last-mile accessibility, while mitigating emissions and congestion.
Comprehensively reform parking policy across California cities.
From implementing better pricing models to easing the burden of fees and fines on low-income individuals to addressing widespread abuse of disabled placards (pdf), California has the opportunity to address challenges in parking systems from multiple angles. CaCTI cities strive to make the best possible use of valuable public space dedicated to parking for improved accessibility and equity outcomes.
