Rideshare Week challenge winners announced
To help promote Rideshare Week 2009, SANDAG’s commuter services program, iCommute, held a Carpool Challenge asking commuters to go online and sign up for the free ridematching service called RideMatcher.  Three hundred commuters signed up to take the challenge. Here are the winners.

First quarter transportation progress report
Each quarter, SANDAG issues a transportation progress report to its Board of Directors to keep the members 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. 

Property crime drops in first half of 2009
Fears that the downturn in the economy would result in increased crime have not been realized so far, with countywide statistics for the first half of 2009 showing a slight decrease in the overall crime rate, and a big decline in property crime.

Construction starts on Escondido Rapid Bus project
Construction began November 16 on the Escondido Rapid Bus project, the first of a new wave of bus services coming to the region in the years ahead that will make service more rapid and reliable.
