SANDAG TransNet Program

This year marks the 35th anniversary of TransNet. Check out projects in your community.

For more than three decades, TransNet has been the driving force for improving transportation infrastructure in the San Diego region. TransNet is the half-cent sales tax administered by SANDAG to fund local transportation projects consistent with the Regional Plan. The first 20-year TransNet measure was approved by voters in 1987. It went into effect in 1988 and was extended by voters in 2004 for an additional 40 years. This program is one of the largest transportation improvement programs in California. TransNet funds numerous transit, highway, freight, bikeway, and walkway programs, in addition to an environmental conservation program, transit fare subsidies, and grants for smart growth, active transportation, and transportation services for seniors and persons with disabilities.

TransNet dollars represent a relatively stable funding source for financing critical programs and projects. The initial 20-year TransNet program generated approximately $3.8 billion between 1988 and 2008. The TransNet extension has generated $4.4 billion to date and has been vital in helping us secure additional federal, state, and local funds. Working with our partners Caltrans, MTS, and NCTD, SANDAG has delivered more than 700 projects for our communities.
