SANDAG survey seeks input on plans for future

SAN DIEGO – SANDAG is planning for the development of the county’s regional transportation system over the next 40 years and wants to find out the priorities of the community’s residents.

As part of the extensive public outreach effort that will feed into the 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), SANDAG is conducting an online survey to gather data about travel habits and gauge public opinion on various options for improving the region’s system and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“Decisions are being made now about how our transportation system will grow in the coming decades,” SANDAG Executive Director Gary Gallegos said. “We need to know the priorities for our region. Do you think we need a better transit system? Do you want more freeway construction? Are you concerned about the production of greenhouse gases? Register your opinions by taking our survey.”

SANDAG will collect responses through September. There are 28 questions on the survey, which takes only a few minutes to complete. Questions solicit opinions on a wide range of topics, including transportation planning, personal travel patterns, environmental concerns, and demographic information.

The data will be used to inform the 2050 RTP, a blueprint for the region’s transportation system. In compliance with recent legislation, the San Diego region RTP will be the first in the state to address reducing greenhouse gases from passenger vehicles. The RTP, which is updated every four years, is expected to be adopted by the SANDAG Board in 2011.

The 2050 RTP survey is available online in English and Spanish at: http://www.SANDAG.org/2050rtp.

The public is invited to learn more by signing up for the RTP email list at [email protected], or by becoming a fan on Facebook.
