Mode Shift


Mode Shift

CRTP advocates for policies, plans and projects which encourage mode shift in communities throughout the North Coast. Our current major project focuses on the public square in the center of Humboldt County’s second biggest city: the Arcata Plaza.

We advocate a “living plaza” which exemplifies our belief that there is a deep connection between transportation and issues like civic health, the economy, the climate crisis, and human flourishing. By redesigning the Plaza to prioritize people over vehicles, and integrating additional family-friendly activities, we can make a more pro-social and environmentally responsible public space which helps support a thriving local economy.
