Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA)
Metropolitan Planning Organization for Shasta County
Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA), is the federally-designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Shasta County, located at the northern end of the Sacramento Valley with a population of approximately 180,000 people concentrated in the region’s three incorporated cities, Redding, Shasta Lake, and Anderson. SRTA adopted its first Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS) in 2015.
The 2015 RTP/SCS builds upon the region’s blueprint, ShastaFORWARD, adopted in 2010, which focuses growth in seven newly-established Strategic Growth Areas (SGA). These SGAs, one located in each of the cities and in four of the unincorporated communities, are areas in which the region plans to increase employment and residential densities, and focus other strategies to reduce vehicle miles traveled. The RTP/SCS plans to increase average residential density by about 14 percent on a region-wide basis, improve the existing transportation system by expanding service on existing bus routes, and provide more bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
