Transportation Management Plan

The purpose of the Event Transportation Management Plan (TMP) is to identify strategies to provide safe, convenient, and efficient access for all modes of travel to and from the Sacramento Entertainment and Sport Center (ESC), also known as Golden 1 Center (G1C). The identified strategies are intended to minimize conflicts between vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles, and transit before, during, and after events at G1C. The Golden 1 Center Year One Travel Monitoring Report compares travel conditions during major events at Golden 1 Center against various performance standards established in the TMP.
