From roads less traveled to highways supporting California’s demanding commute. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) manages more than 50,000 miles of California's highway and freeway lanes, provides inter-city rail services, permits more than 400 public-use airports and special-use hospital heliports, and works with local agencies to keep California moving. More than the road workers, we are California’s transportation infrastructure; established in 1895, Caltrans has been active in moving the people and commerce of California and continues to model the way in innovative transportation systems.

 

Caltrans, Planning and Modal Program (PMP) shapes the future of multimodal transportation across California by envisioning, articulating, and implementing desired outcomes.

It is our commitment to the residents of California that keeps us honest in our mission of providing a safe, sustainable, integrated and efficient transportation system to enhance the state of California’s economy and livability.
