future of public transportation

The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) recently announced an update on the development of San Diego Forward: The 2021 Regional Plan, proposing to deliver a bold new transportation vision for San Diego County.

The new transportation plan—dubbed by SANDAG as the "5 Big Moves"—includes strategic initiatives to use and build on evolving technology and add to existing infrastructure.

The new vision aims to provide travelers with transportation choices that are competitive with the car for every trip in the region. The vision aims to connect communities to major destinations and employment centers while increasing mobility throughout the San Diego region.

The 5 Big Moves encompass groundbreaking technologies, such as the Next Operating System (Next OS), a transportation “brain” that will provide an integrated and connected transportation network that maximizes efficiency, capacity, and speed, giving commuters choices in their travel and allowing the transportation system to react in real time. The 5 Big Moves also outline a path forward that builds upon existing infrastructure with Complete Corridors, Flexible Fleets, Transit Leap, and Mobility Hubs, connecting major destinations and employment centers with residential areas.
