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.
SGVCOG is proud to be working on projects that would reduce congestion and encourage residents to utilize public transportation for their commutes, including:
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
This program is an effort led by the SGVCOG to bring cost-effective transportation alternatives to the San Gabriel Valley. The agency has entered into an agreement with Gotcha, Inc. for the purchase and implementation of around 2,000 pedal-assist bicycles. The project is funded through a statewide Active Transportation Program (ATP) grant.
Open Streets Events
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.
