NEW: Updated Complete Streets Policy Inventory and Resources

April 21, 2022

The latest addition to CATSIP is our updated and refreshed Complete Streets page with new resources and Policy Inventory, which now features California policies at the city, regional, and statewide level, as well as links to federal Complete Streets policies. You can find the updated Complete Streets page under our “Explore Plans” tab. 

What is a Complete Street?

A Complete Street is a roadway that is designed, planned, and implemented to provide safe mobility for people of all ages and abilities. This includes people walking, biking, scooting, using assistive mobility devices, and taking transit. Complete Streets are essential in creating a safe and comfortable transportation experience. Each Complete Street looks different depending on the surrounding context, community needs, and type of mobility device.

Advancing Active Transportation Safety

Our Complete Streets page and Policy Inventory aims to help planners, transportation safety professionals, advocates and community members alike research the Complete Streets efforts their city, county, or larger community has legislated and look to other city’s or region’s safety efforts as a guideline for planning and improving their streets for their most vulnerable road users. Complete Streets policies are split into four sections: federal, statewide, regional, and citywide. 

Our Complete Streets page and Policy Inventory are continuously being updated as more legislative bodies adopt Complete Streets policies. Do you know of a policy we can add to the list? Please let us know at
