Availability and accessibility of transportation,in all its modes, has a major impact on the quality of life for the residents of Fresno County. The transportation system’s key role in connecting workers to good jobs is generally understood; limited transportation options can negatively impact job possibilities and income of residents. However, the impact of the quality of the transportation system is not just related to connecting workers to employment. Affordable and accessible transportation options allow residents to shop for necessities, attend school, visit the doctor, and conduct other key aspects of life without excessively draining household budgets or taking up large portions of time. Additionally, easily available options for non-motorized transportation modes such as biking and walking can directly encourage healthy habits that improve communities.

Fehr & Peers conducted a thorough analysis of the regional bicycle and trail facilities between local jurisdictions, taking into account reasonable biking distances. They then developed solutions for closing those gaps, including costs and funding sources for proposed projects. This presentation will detail the methodology in choosing the highest priority routes.
