The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Aviation Program is responsible for developing long term regional aviation plans as well as passenger demand, cargo, and operation forecasting for all airports that lie within the SCAG region. The aviation section is also responsible for researching aviation issues that affect regional aviation transportation as well as developing the aviation element of the Regional Transportation Plan, staffing the Aviation Task Force and Aviation Technical Advisory Committee, and providing input to the Transportation Committee.

- Corridor Planning
SCAG's Regional Transportation Plan identifies transportation needs in corridors and encourages planners and policy-makers to start preparing strategies for preserving corridors now for use in the future. Good planning can prevent losing rights-of-way needed for developing transportation facilities. Thus, rights-of-way preservation is a reasonable objective, particularly in areas where new development may block a long-range corridor.

- Goods Movement
The Southern California Association of Governments' Goods Movement Program seeks to optimize the region's transportation system through increases in economic efficiency, congestion mitigation, and air quality improvements, and enhancements to system security. In doing so, all modes of freight are being evaluated, ultimately resulting in a series of new recommendations and policies regarding infrastructure improvements.

- High-Speed Rail
With six million additional people expected to populate Southern California in the next 30 years, mobility can only get worse. Southern California's future economic viability and quality of life depend on its ability to move people and goods. To meet this challenge, a high speed rail Maglev system connecting the region's airports and activity centers is being planned to reduce the congestion, air pollution, noise and other impacts of such tremendous growth.

- Intelligent Transportation System
Southern California Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Regional Architecture is a Regional ITS Architecture for the SCAG region. The region includes the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial. The goal of the project is to document the ITS Architecture covering the Southern California Region. An ITS Architecture is a framework for ensuring institutional agreement and technical integration of technologies for the implementation of projects or groups of projects under an ITS strategy.

- Transportation Finance
The Southern California Association of Governments' (SCAG) Transportation Finance Program seeks to optimize the region's transportation systems by planning for the long-term financial needs of the region. SCAG is working to address funding shortfalls by researching and promoting innovative financing techniques, and developing strategies for the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), so that the greatest amount of transportation dollars are available to the region. In doing so, all forms of potential funding for transportation are analyzed and evaluated by SCAG.
