Quarterly transportation progress report
Each quarter, SANDAG issues a transportation progress report to its Board of Directors to keep them apprised of the many projects underway in the region. By leveraging state, federal, and local TransNet dollars, SANDAG funds transportation improvements and services designed to give commuters more choices and reduce growing traffic congestion.

Work begins on half-billion dollar I-15 project
SANDAG and Caltrans recently broke ground on a $467 million project to add seven miles of freeway-within-a-freeway to Interstate 15, bringing congestion relief to motorists who drive the corridor.

One million San Diegans use 511 its first year
The region’s 511 transportation information service celebrated its first birthday in February – and during this past year more than one million people have used the free phone and Web service to find everything from carpool information to real-time traffic conditions.

Cox connects to commute options
The SANDAG RideLink team recently participated in Cox Communication’s “Cox Conserves” event where they distributed information about commuter programs such as vanpools, carpools, and public transit.

MTS sets ridership records for 2007
The Metropolitan Transit System continued to set ridership records in 2007, generating 88,719,750 passenger trips and averaging over 265,000 daily weekday trips for the calendar year!

New publications released
SANDAG recently released several brochures designed to inform the public about the recently adopted Regional Transportation Plan, the TransNet half-cent sales tax program, and the 2006 American Community Survey.
