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 subcommittee, advisory in nature, to identify future transportation solutions for improved transit and road connectivity to the San Diego International Airport. The Subcommittee first convened on January 3, 2019, and lasted through September 25, 2019. The Subcommittee concluded its work by bringing a recommendation to the SANDAG Board of Directors of four concepts to move into further study and environmental analysis. The Board of Directors approved the recommendation at its September 27, 2019 meeting.

Over the course of six meetings, the Subcommittee: discussed the goals for the region related to airport connectivity; developed evaluation criteria based on regional goals; narrowed its focus to the NAVWAR property, the Intermodal Transit Center, and a trolley connection; and analyzed multiple concepts related to airport connectivity through modeling analysis. To ensure SANDAG considered the most innovative ideas, SANDAG released two Requests for Information (RFI) to solicit feedback from external entities for improved connectivity, the creation of a Central Mobility Hub, as well as supportive land use.

SANDAG Chair and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus served as the Chair of the Airport Connectivity Subcommittee. Members of the Subcommittee were appointed by the Chair and included 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.
