At SANDAG, we’re passionate about transportation. We know it’s critical for our region and the goal of the Regional Plan is making sure our transportation system is faster, fairer, and cleaner. We believe that mobility — the ability to travel quickly and easily — will drive future economic prosperity, enhance access to opportunities, and improve the overall quality of life for everyone. We’re working to make transportation faster by optimizing traffic flow, fairer by expanding access and affordable options to historically underserved communities, and cleaner by investing in green transportation that will improve air quality and meet climate action mandates.
What is the Regional Plan? SANDAG’s Regional Plan is a 30-year plan that considers how we will grow, where we will live, and how we will move around the region. The plan is updated every four years and allows us the opportunity to reassess how to best enhance the quality of life for everyone in our region for generations to come. We’re leveraging our extensive, data-driven expertise to develop innovative solutions to create a world-class transportation system that will be more efficient, accessible, and sustainable. Data about population and economic forecasts, laws, and trends in technology are the foundation to our plan.
The 2021 Regional Plan was adopted by the Board of Directors on December 10, 2021, and serves as our region’s long-term plan used to incrementally implement projects. SANDAG will begin development of the 2025 Regional Plan, the next four-year Regional Plan cycle, in late 2021.
