"Caltrans released its new Strategic Management Plan [PDF], and it includes priorities and performance targets that show the department is serious about reforming itself," according to Melanie Curry.

"The new plan includes active transportation and Vision Zero, within its priority number one, 'Safety and Health.' It also cites a goal of tripling bicycle mode share and doubling walking and transit mode share by 2020–that means not just the number of trips, but the percentage of total trips in California."
