Bike Lanes and Sidewalks

Notify us of obstacles or hazards that may inhibit bike or pedestrian travel by using the RTC’s Hazard Report.


A number of California State Routes commonly referred to as Highways run through Santa Cruz County. Santa Cruz County residents and visitors are served by Highways:  1, 9, 17, 129, 152 and 236. While the State of California owns, maintains and operates these highways, a significant level of local participation in both funding and planning for these facilities is required. These local highway-related activities are conducted by the RTC.
