The SJCOG Board will consider how the San Joaquin County region will invest in transportation choices over the next 20+ years in the RTP/SCS. Please tell us how important each item is for the plan update.

 
Expand bicycle and pedestrian routes


 
Widen roadways


 
Build new roadways to improve access or support new development


 
Expand rail service, including service hours and frequency


 
Maintain highways and local roads, including fixing potholes


 
Expand bus service, including service hours and frequency


 
Improve traffic operations, including traffic signal timing or freeway ramp metering


 
Facilitate residential and commercial development near public transit (bus and rail)


 
Infrastructure for charging electric vehicles


 
Improvements for self-driving vehicles


 
High occupancy vehicles (HOV) or carpool lanes on freeways


 
How important do you think it is for the updated plan to increase funding for maintaining, operating, and rehabilitating the following:

 
Existing road and highway system (e.g. fixing potholes, new lane striping, resurfacing roads)


 
Existing bus and rail system (e.g. more bus routes, fixing and replacing buses and rail cars)


 
Existing bicycle and pedestrian facilities (e.g. new striping, improved signage, traffic calming, cross walks, etc.)


 
Transportation projects are funded through a wide variety of federal, state, and local sources, such as gas tax, sales tax, local city and county budgets, and transit fares. This funding is limited, and projects included in the RTP/SCS must be constrained by this budget. Investment decisions come with difficult tradeoffs. If you believe more funding is needed for an area you identified as a priority in previous questions, what is the best way for SJCOG to pay for it?
