Continuing Action – Implement state-of-the-art technologies and Transportation Demand and Systems Management Programs

To make our transportation system as efficient and user-friendly as possible, the Regional Plan envisions a network of high-tech tools to help transportation managers keep the system running smoothly, and to help travelers make their trips faster, more efficient, and trouble-free. The benefits of these technologies go beyond speeding up the commute. Better informed travelers and more efficiently run roadways and transit systems can lead to lower demands on the overall transportation system.

Continued expansion of regional Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs and services including online ride matching and trip planning, the SANDAG Vanpool Program, the regional bike parking program, a Guaranteed Ride Home service, GO by BIKE mini grants, Walk, Ride and Roll to School services, and employer outreach. The Transportation Network Company Uber was added as a Guaranteed Ride Home service provider starting July 1, 2017. Planning for the San Diego Regional Autonomous Vehicle Proving Ground is ongoing, as well.

Transportation Systems Management (TSM) programs effort are on-going including providing technical support in project planning and implementation including participating in the development of the system requirements for the SR 11 Border Crossing Management System, the 805 Buses on Shoulder Concept of Operations, completion of the I-805 Active Transportation Demand Management Concept of Operations, and development of the Transit Signal Priority Guidebook.
