To the Region:
The Regional Council of the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) proudly presents the 2008 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP): Making the Connections, adopted on May 8, 2008. Success in transportation and transportation planning is about making the connections, whether it’s connecting from bike to bus or truck to rail, relating the travel choices we make with environmental consequences, ensuring that land-use and transportation planning go hand-in-hand, or more equitably linking our transportation nance mechanisms to those who bene tdirectly from the use of the system. Southern California’s transportation network is severely overburdened and underfunded. For at least the last two decades, we have consistently ranked as the nation’s most congested metropolitan area. It is anticipated that over the next 25 years, the region’s population will increase by 6 million people and cargo trade through our ports and airports will triple in the same time period, doubling our truck traf c. As a result, roadway speeds are expected to decrease and traf c delays to increase over the next 25 years, all changes that directly impact our environment and air quality. The 2008 RTP strives to provide a regional investment framework to address the region’s transportation and related challenges. It is a $531.5 billion Plan (in nominal or year-of-expenditure dollars) that emphasizes the importance of system management, goods movement, and innovative transportation nancing. It looks to strategies that preserve and enhance the existing transportation system and integrate land use into transportation planning. The RTP was developed in collaboration with agencies from across the region, including our 14 subregions. We worked with county transportation
commissions, subregional organizations, transit agencies, tribal nations, non-pro ts and advocacy groups, and other interested stakeholders. The majority of projects that you will see in the Plan were submitted by our region’s ve county transportation commissions and the Imperial Valley Association of Governments. Our region faces great challenges, and we cannot afford to try to solve them solely on a city or even county level. We must look at the bigger picture of Southern California as a region, to look at strategies and new transportation systems that will make this region function the best that it can, and at the end of the day, to make Southern California a place that we are all proud to call our home.
