The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is required by Federal and State regulations to develop a long-range statewide transportation plan, with a minimum 20-year forecast period for all areas of the State every five years. The Plan provides for the development and implementation of the intermodal transportation system of the State. The statutes also require Caltrans to provide opportunities for participation in developing the plan.
Senate Bill (SB) 391 (Liu, 2009) expanded the scope of the California Transportation Plan (CTP) by requiring the plan to address how the state will achieve maximum feasible emission reductions in order to attain a statewide reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, and an 80 percent reduction below 1990 levels by 2050. In addition, the bill requires Caltrans to consult with and coordinate its planning activities with specified entities and to provide an opportunity for public input, and that a plan update occurs every five years beginning December 31, 2015.
Senate Bill (SB) 486 (DeSaulnier, 2014) authorized the California Transportation Commission (CTC) to establish guidelines for updates to the CTP. Approved and adopted in May 2017, the primary purpose of the CTP Guidelines is to provide a cohesive policy framework and document structure for Caltrans to consider and use in the development of future CTPs. The CTP guidelines also identify and ensure compliance with federal regulations and state statutory requirements; and identify state policies for inclusion in CTP.
Purpose of Work
The update of the CTP 2050 provides a remarkable opportunity to consider the future of the State¿s transportation system at a moment of promise. Serving a growing population and economy, while minimizing resource use and carbon emissions is a continuing challenge as is the need to mediate between statewide needs and the priorities of local communities. The present moment offers a rare opportunity to find new ways to serve the mobility needs of the people of California.
The CTP 2050 effort will address a number of key areas including: (1) Transportation Funding such as Senate Bill 1, California Cap and Trade program, Caltrans Road Charge Pilot Program, and voter approved county sales taxes; (2) Transportation Technology comprised of high-speed rail, automated vehicles, shared mobility, electric vehicles and charging infrastructure; and (3) Emerging Values and Priorities consisting of active transportation, climate change mitigation and adaption, demographics, aging population, and environmental and social justice.
California¿s transportation system has changed dramatically with the advent of ridesourcing technologies like Uber and Lyft, increased adoption of Zero Emission Vehicles, and the proliferation of car-share and bike-share. We anticipate that California¿s transportation system will continue to transform over time given technological advances and other factors. Automated vehicles are expected to enter the market in the next few years, and new technologies, such as drones, will likely impact goods movement. It seems inevitable that new technologies will reshape California¿s infrastructure, land use, and urban design.
In the public sector, all three phases of California High Speed Rail will be operational by mid-century, and California¿s ambitious suite of greenhouse gas emissions legislation (e.g. Senate Bill 32) will require more Californians to engage with low-carbon forms of transportation, such as bicycling and walking. The increased use of sustainable transportation modes combined with the increased electrification of vehicles will result in significant reductions in gasoline and diesel tax revenue and may require a complete rethinking of statewide transportation finance.
The Contractor shall lead the preparation of the CTP 2050; working closely with Department staff, government agencies, tribal communities, stakeholders, private citizens, and other interested parties; and be responsible for completing the CTP 2050 by December 2020.
The CTP 2050 shall:
¿        Consider the transportation issues described above, among others;
¿        Validate and build on the groundwork laid by the CTP 2040, integrate Caltrans statewide long-range modal plans and programs (including the Strategic Highway Safety Plan), and build on the Regional Transportation Plans (RTPs) and Sustainable Communities Strategies (SCSs) developed by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and the transportation and land use visions developed by Regional Transportation Planning Agencies (RTPAs);
¿        Meet existing federal and state legislative requirements and conform to relevant legislative guidance;
¿        Address public comments and concerns in a thorough and thoughtful manner;
Specifically address implementation and the prospect of policy alignment within transportation system entities;
¿        Identify and evaluate innovative strategies to positive drive change in the transportation sector;
¿        Take inspiration from state-of-the-art planning practices in transportation and other sectors;
¿        Facilitate a process that accommodates change; and
¿        Accelerate Caltrans¿ focus on its mission to provide a safe, sustainable, integrated and efficient transportation system to enhance California¿s economy and livability.
The CTP is a policy document rooted in technical analysis. Although this plan does not include specific projects, it reflects an extensive modeling exercise that compares outcomes of a range of scenarios to be defined through the planning process. The exercise incorporates regional plans and socioeconomic projections. The Scope of Work described below includes formulation of the scenarios followed by analysis of transportation, economic, climate, and social equity impacts. The Contractor shall provide a wide range of capabilities as well as to contribute to formulating an approach to undertaking the CTP update.
The purpose of this Agreement is to describe the work that shall be performed by the Contractor, the work product that the Contractor will produce, and the process that the Contractor will use to work with Caltrans to develop the CTP 2050 in compliance with adopted CTP Guidelines and present it in a format that is visually expressive and understandable to all Californians, as well as develop scenarios that can be modeled from a transportation and economic lens.
The Contractor shall provide the services and work product described in the following five sections:
1)        CTP 2050 Document Development
2)        CTP 2050 Scenario Development and Workshops
3)        CTP 2050 Public Workshops
4)        CTP 2050 Modeling Analysis
5)        CTP 2050 Economic Impact Analysis
