Group assessment on tribal road

Active Transportation Needs Assessments (ATNA) with California Native American Tribes

SafeTREC in partnership with the National Indian Justice Center (NIJC) and the Cher-Ae Heights Indian Community of the Trinidad Rancheria conducted the Active Transportation Needs Assessments (ATNA) for ten (10) Federally-Recognized California Native American Tribes. These assessments documented current and projected needs and safety concerns of pedestrians and bicyclists (including connections with transit where applicable) in the participating tribal communities; the existing conditions of roadway, pedestrian, bicycle, and infrastructure facilities; and recommended short-term and long-term improvements (infrastructure and non-infrastructure). Learn more about this project.
