As the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) prepares to develop the 2016–2040 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, the agency is updating its Public Participation Plan and invites your input.

Consistent with federal and state requirements, SCAG regularly reviews and evaluates its public participation and outreach activities to ensure that the public and interested parties are given early, meaningful and substantive opportunities to be involved in SCAG’s decision-making. To that end, SCAG released the 2014 Draft Public Participation Plan on January 22, 2014 for a mandatory 45–day public review and comment period, which ends at 5:00 p.m. on March 7, 2014.

SCAG invites your review and comments on the draft plan.

The Public Review period starts on February 13, 2018 and will conclude at 5:00 p.m. on February 22, 2018.

A copy of the Project Listing is located on the SCAG FTIP website Proposed Amendment link at http://ftip.scag.ca.gov/Pages/2017/proposed.aspx.

Please note that some of the changes or project additions may be for projects funded with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 funds. This public involvement opportunity is provided to meet the public involvement requirements for the program of projects.

SCAG is relying on the public participation process for the FTIP to satisfy FTA public participation requirements for the transit program of projects. The public notice of public participation activities and the time established for public review of and comments on the FTIP will satisfy the pop requirements.

Subject to revisions to address comments received during the public review period, the 2017 FTIP as revised by Proposed Amendment #17-18 will be the final program unless amended, and a final notice will not be published.

LOS ANGELES – A new report released by the Southern California Association of Governments and the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies found a dramatic increase in private automobile ownership in Southern California is the main cause of an overall decline in transit ridership.

The report, “Falling Transit Ridership: California and Southern California,” was commissioned by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) to identify the causes of transit ridership declines in the region, which are part of an overall nationwide trend.

Authored by faculty at the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies, this new study found that the six-county SCAG region added 2.1 million household vehicles between the years 2000 and 2015, a car increase that nearly quadruples the rate of the preceding decade. The number of vehicles added nearly matches the growth in population during those years.
