In May 2021, the City Council adopted the Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan. This document, which replaces the 2014 Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan, implements the City's General Plan goals and policies relative to non-vehicular mobility in the city.

The Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan (BPTMP) is a critical tool for City staff as it shapes a balanced transportation system. The BPTMP includes network improvements combined with programs and policies intended to provide a holistic approach to improving active transportation in Elk Grove. The City of Elk Grove seeks to have exemplary bicycle, pedestrian, and trail facilities that provide connectivity throughout the city and the wider Sacramento region in order to offer recreational opportunities and an alternative method for transportation for city residents. The ultimate goal of the BPTMP is to shift local trips from single-occupancy vehicles to walking or bicycling through supporting a culture where walking and bicycling are safe, convenient transportation options, promoting safe behavior by all road users and improving connectivity and accessibility for all users.

Design Protocols related to bicycle and pedestrian facilities are also part of this document. These Design Protocols direct the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of bicycle, pedestrian, and trails facilities in Elk Grove.
