Notice of Review and Comment - Transit Impediments Study

The Transit Impediments Study summarizes both financial and ridership impediments to maintaining long-term transit service levels throughout San Diego County. The report also includes potential alternatives based on overcoming the identified impediments, increasing and maintaining service levels and increasing and maintaining funding for transit operational expenses. The public comment period on this study is now open for a 60 public review.

Background

In November 2007, the Board of Directors certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and approved the 2030 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). Shortly thereafter, SANDAG and several interested parties entered into a settlement agreement which identified studies to be completed by SANDAG in preparation for the 2050 RTP (Settlement Agreement). The study regarding impediments to public transit is one element of the settlement agreement.

As stipulated in the Settlement Agreement, the study includes: (1) all known and reasonably foreseeable financial impediments to maintaining long-term transit service levels throughout San Diego County; (2) all known and reasonably foreseeable impediments to maintaining long-term public transit ridership throughout San Diego County, and (3) all known and reasonably foreseeable recurring sources (i.e., not one-time sources) that provide, or can provide, funding to cover for operational expenses for public transit throughout San Diego County. The discussion of each transit impediment included in the report should be considered as alternatives that SANDAG could implement in order to increase and maintain service levels or increase and maintain funding for operational expenses to the fullest extent possible.

The SANDAG Board of Directors opened a 60-day public comment on this study on April 24, 2009. Written comments can be sent to Philip Trom, SANDAG, 401 B Street, Suite 800, San Diego, CA 92101.
