Comprehensive Regional Airport Access

Airport Connectivity Subcommittee

On December 21, 2018, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the draft charter and membership for the Airport Connectivity Subcommittee, a temporary subcommitee, advisory in nature, to identify future transportation solutions for improved transit and road connectivity to the San Diego International Airport.

The purpose of the Airport Connectivity Subcommittee is to lead discussions and explore options for how best to build consensus around transportation solutions for improved connectivity to
the airport for generations to come. The work of the Airport Connectivity Subcommittee will conclude upon adoption of a preferred transportation solution by the Board of Directors.

To help identify potential solutions, the Subcommittee is evaluating previous planning efforts and SANDAG has released a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit innovative ideas from external entities that may contribute to improving connectivity to the airport.

SANDAG Chair and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus serves as the Chair of the Airport Connectivity Subcommittee. Members of the Subcommittee were appointed by the Chair and include Board members from the following organizations: SANDAG, City of San Diego, County of San Diego, Metropolitan Transit System, North County Transit District, San Diego Unified Port District, San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, and Caltrans District 11.

At the first meeting, on January 3, 2019, the Subcommittee reviewed timelines for agency planning and project efforts underway, went through a compilation of previous studies and newer concepts, and discussed agency roles and responsibilities.

The Subcommittee is anticipated to meet monthly through summer 2019.
