San Ramon LogoPlanning For Solutions

Since its incorporation in 1983, San Ramon has appreciated the importance of proactive transportation planning, and has focused on the development and implementation of innovative solutions to transportation problems. The City has been in the forefront of commute alternative programs (ridesharing, carpooling, vanpooling, biking, etc.), and continues to implement an ambitious travel demand management strategy. Today, our commute alternative/transportation demand management program includes carpool, vanpool and transit incentive programs, as well as carpool-to-school ridematching assistance. All of these programs are available at no charge to San Ramon residents.

San Ramon continues to participate in forward-looking regional transportation planning efforts, including the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), the Tri-Valley Transportation Council (TVTC), the Southwest Area Transportation Planning Committee (SWAT) and the Tri-Valley Community Resource Team. These planning programs have brought local and regional transportation and air quality issues into multi-jurisdictional discussion, and the development of the Tri-Valley Transportation Plan.

At the local level, San Ramon reviews traffic impact of proposed developments, and requires traffic mitigation fees and other measures to ensure that new growth does not overwhelm the City’s transportation facilities and infrastructure. Current City and regional traffic impact fees total over $5,000 for each new single-family home. The Southern Contra Costa Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement Fee program, which is applied to all developments in San Ramon, Danville, and unincorporated areas of south Contra Costa County, will bring approximately $30,000,000 to San Ramon for roadway improvements over the next 20 years.

Traffic Engineering function is administered by the City's Engineering Department. Staff designs roads to the highest engineering standards, and continues to monitor traffic growth, accident patterns, and other indicators of traffic conditions. Additionally, the City traffic engineers strive to identify potential safety concerns and positive prompt solutions. Through the five-year Capital Improvement Plan, roadway improvements are programmed for design and construction.

The City of San Ramon’s Residential Traffic Calming Program was developed to improve neighborhood livability and safety. It also encourages citizens to get involved in finding workable solutions to problems such as speeding or cut-through traffic on residential streets.

Listed below are some of the program areas encompassing transportation planning:
