The San Gabriel Valley’s future economic viability and quality of life depend on its ability to move people and goods effectively. To meet this challenge, the SGVCOG is collaborating with various state and regional stakeholders to plan regional, inter-city, and inter-regional mobility improvements. The SGVCOG works collaboratively with the region’s transportation agencies and transit operators to develop goals, objectives, plans, and policies to provide effective and sustainable transit options for the region.
MEASURE M MULTI-YEAR SUBREGIONAL PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION
In June 2017, the Metro Board of Directors adopted the Measure M guidelines to identify a process by which Measure M funds will be programmed by subregional entities, including SGVCOG, through the development of five-year subregional fund programming plans. SGVCOG received a portion of the Measure M subregional funds for administrative regional planning on active transportation and goods movement projects.

REGIONAL BIKESHARE PROGRAM
In August 2017, the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) was awarded by the CTC a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Grant in the amount of $4.55 million to form a bike share program in the San Gabriel Valley. This grant will fund at least 15 participating cities, which includes a minimum of 840 bikes and stations throughout the region. The goal of this program is to decrease drive-alone trips and increase the share of bicycling trips within the San Gabriel Valley.

OPEN STREETS EVENTS
The SGVCOG partners with local community organizations and member agencies to host open streets events that provide communities the opportunity to experience city streets without vehicles. These events temporarily close streets to automobile traffic and open them to cyclists, pedestrians, and other modes of non-motorized transportation.
