SANDAG adopts 2021 regional transportation plan for San Diego region

Dec. 13, 2021

The plan covers pedestrian, cyclist, vehicular, and public transportation

The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) Board of Directors recently voted to adopt the 2021 Regional Plan, the blueprint for transportation in the San Diego region through 2050.

SANDAG says the plan covers pedestrian, cyclist, vehicular, and public transportation. It was developed using a data-driven approach and combats climate change by making transit competitive in every major corridor throughout the region.

“This is a monumental day for the San Diego region,” SANDAG Chief Executive Officer Hasan Ikhrata said in a statement. “The 2021 Regional Plan creates real transportation options that address today’s challenges and build a foundation for tomorrow, ensuring our region is ready for generations to come.”    

While the plan spans 30 years into the future, SANDAG will immediately start working to advance projects, including but not limited to opening the new Otay Mesa East Port of Entry and Smart Border Management System; relocating the LOSSAN rail corridor off the bluffs; advancing the Central Mobility Hub to provide direct transit connections to the San Diego International Airport; Blue Line Express; Purple Line; Regional Vision Zero action plan and policy; and Digital Equity Action Plan.

SANDAG gathered years of community input and analyzed new data to develop the 2021 Regional Plan. Information about where people live and work, how they get around, how existing transportation infrastructure works well or needs improvement, and what is needed to support future growth were all considered and shared with the SANDAG Board or Directors and the public in a series of presentations since the Board provided direction to develop a new vision in early 2019.  

The 2021 Regional Plan incorporates the latest technologies, meets all state and federal requirements and air quality mandates, addresses traffic congestion and roadway safety, and improves social equity, according to SANDAG.
