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, San Diego Forward: The 2019 Federal Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) 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 include the following highlights:

  • Selected three vanpool vendors, one of which now offers zero-emission vehicle options
  • Continued partnership with Waze for an on-demand carpool pilot
  • Ongoing bike education services for employers and schools
  • Ongoing employer outreach
  • Continued upgrading of mechanical bike lockers to electronic lockers at transit stations
  • Support for member agencies with the development of TDM programs, plans, and policies
  • Completed the Commuter Services Strategic Plan, which provides recommendations on improvements to the bike parking and Guaranteed Ride Home programs
  • Continued coordination of a Regional Micromobility Coordination group with member agencies, transit operators, universities, and military
  • Completed Regional Park & Ride Strategy
  • Completed Mobility Management Toolbox to support member agencies with quantifying the VMT and GHG benefits associated with TDM/TSM investments
  • Continued statewide TNC data collection in partnership with MTC and SCAG
  • Continued partnership with NCTD to implement mobility hub pilots at select COASTER and SPRINTER stations
