Pasadena General Plan

City of Pasadena

The Mobility Group staff were consultants to the City of Pasadena for the preparation of the Mobility Element of the City’s 1993 General Plan Update.  The Mobility Element comprised a multimodal plan to support one of the General Plan’s Seven Guiding Principles that “Pasadena will be a city where people can circulate without cars”.  The Plan identified strategies to increase the availability and use of transit, including a focus on the planned light rail line in the City, and to provide priority treatment for transit vehicles; to increase the use of bicycling and walking by providing enhanced bicycle facilities and improving pedestrian environments; to reduce the level of vehicular trips in general; and to develop land use planning policies to support the mobility goals, including increasing land use densities in transit corridors, developing mixed use zoning, and developing parking supply and pricing programs.

The Plan established multimodal Principal Mobility Corridors within the City, and identified policies to control through traffic and reduce adverse impacts of traffic on certain streets and in residential neighborhoods.  The Plan identified significant transit components, based up on the planned Metro Gold Line light rail transit system, and including feeder bus service; circulator shuttle service to connect various City districts; bus priority measures and free fare zones, and HOV facilities.
