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 include the following highlights:

  • Developed a Request for Proposals for a zero-emissions, on-demand Vanpool Pilot
  • Partnered with Waze Carpool to launch an on-demand carpool pilot and an application for filling empty seats in vanpools
  • Continued upgrading mechanical bike lockers to electronic lockers at transit stations
  • Ongoing bike education services for employers and schools
  • Ongoing employer outreach
  • Planning and policy support for member agencies with the development of TDM programs, plans and policies including a coordinated bikeshare pilot across the North Coast cities and development of a TDM ordinance for the City of Carlsbad
  • Launched a Regional Micromobility Coordination group with member agencies, transit operators, universities, and military.
  • Regional Park & Ride Strategy coordination
  • Ongoing operation of the San Diego Regional Proving Ground
  • Ongoing participation in the Future Mobility Research Program

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.
