The City of San Luis Obispo was recently admitted as a member of the National Association of City Transportation Officials, or NACTO. NACTO is an association of over 40 cities across North America formed to exchange innovative transportation ideas and best practices. SLO joins 10 other California cities including San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Santa Monica. NACTO is best known for its design guides of state-of-the-practice bicycle, pedestrian, and transit facilities. For instance, the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide was one of the first to provide guidance on bike boxes, bike signals, and green pavement for bikeways — all of which are facilities found in the City of SLO. The City will now play an active role in shaping the design guides and collaborating with the other member cities in creating best practices.
