Mobility Master Plan
The Mobility Master Plan is a comprehensive transportation planning effort to create a balanced, equitable, and sustainable mobility system for the City of San Diego. It will combine community, mode, and objective-specific planning into one comprehensive document to prioritize mobility projects and to identify programs that will have the largest benefit in our communities and on the environment. Additionally, the Mobility Master Plan will ensure that Citywide mobility initiatives support investments in areas with the greatest needs, promote Vision Zero, and advance the goals of the Climate Action Plan and the General Plan. The Mobility Master Plan will focus on projects, programs and actions that will help make walking, rolling, bicycling, and using transit more convenient, efficient, and affordable.
This plan brings together mobility ideas, needs, and specific projects from other citywide and neighborhood plans to create one unified, actionable plan. Its focus is to meet the City’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) goals to help us shift from personal vehicle use to more environmentally conscious transportation modes. It includes:
- A description of where we are and where we’re going in regard to the citywide mobility system and vision
- Identification of focus areas that reflect areas with the greatest mobility needs through an equity-based, data-driven analysis
- A list of priority projects and programs based on safety, equity, sustainability, and connectivity criteria
- Near- and long-term steps, actions, and performance metrics
In the past, types of mobility were addressed separately (Pedestrian Master Plan or Bicycle Master Plan) or in individual community plans. Mobility needs its own comprehensive plan across mobility types and communities to both integrate multiple modes and equitably advance solutions where they are most needed. It will also allow the City to track progress to meet its key initiatives and policies: Vision Zero, Climate Equity Index, CAP, BlueprintSD, and the General Plan’s Mobility Element.
- Increasing travel choices for our community members to improve safety and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- Prioritizing mobility investments to fill gaps in the mobility system and create travel choices where they are most needed
- Tracking mobility improvements to identify which ones are the most effective and transformative
Whether you’re going to school, work, a store, the park, or any of the places San Diego has to offer, you should be able to safely and efficiently do so regardless of your mode choice, location, age, ability, or income. The City understands mobility’s crucial role in each person's quality of life and the importance of high-quality, multimodal investments. To that end, the Mobility Master Plan will prioritize active transportation and climate resilient projects to help achieve climate and equity goals.
A draft of this plan is currently available for review. While it reflects the City’s current priorities and needs, it will be a living document that is regularly revisited and updated to respond to the latest conditions and evolving needs as projects are completed, programs are implemented, and growth occurs.

Key Mobility Master Plan Components
Focused Community Engagement
Leverage best practices from the Climate Action Plan outreach to conduct meaningful engagement that will result in obtaining feedback from underrepresented community members.
Process: Identify & Define
Clearly define the mobility planning and the project development processes to promote the most responsible and efficient use of fiscal resources for activities that occur within the public right-of-way.
Projects: Prioritize What Is Needed & Where It Is Needed Most
Develop a prioritization process that emphasizes a multimodal approach and prioritizes projects based on a set of criteria, such as safety, equity, sustainability, and connectivity.
Actions: Identify Implementing Actions
Create implementation actions and identify potential funding sources to advance key prioritized projects, programs, and solutions using performance metrics to track their success.
Strategic Plan Priority Areas of Focus
This initiative focuses on the following priority areas of the Strategic Plan: Advance Mobility & Infrastructure:
- Improve geographic distribution of pedestrian, bike, transit, and roadway infrastructure
- Plan and program for projects that create complete streets and complete corridors
Climate Action Plan, Strategy 3: Mobility & Land Use
The plan aligns with the following from the CAP, Strategy 3, Mobility & Land Use:
- Increase opportunities for walking, bicycling, and using transit
- Reduce car dependency and decrease greenhouse gas emissions
Mobility Master Plan Library Series
We are excited to announce that we are hosting a series of "open house" style events at local libraries in March to gather public feedback on the draft Mobility Master Plan. Please see the flyer linked below for the upcoming dates and library locations where the project team will be available to provide insights and answer questions about the Plan.
