Transit System Performance Report FY2011-2012

Transit System Performance Report FY2011-2012

The FY2011-2012 Transit System Performance Report provides an assessment of the region’s large and complex public transportation system, including current performance and trends over the past two decades. The annual report was developed in response to anticipated federal rulemaking to address performance-based planning requirements in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), and also to establish performance baselines for the 2016-2040 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. Key findings from this report include the continued significance of fixed route bus service in the region, the growing importance of demand response transit to support regional mobility and slow growth in per capita transit trips over the last two decades.

The SCAG Southern California Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) Readiness Plan is an in-depth assessment and planning tool that allows planners to strategically develop the infrastructure necessary to support the region’s growing numbers of electric vehicles. The PEV Readiness Plan is comprised of 15 chapters, covering everything from the basics of PEV charging, to providing technical assistance to commercial property owners and adapting zoning/building codes to streamline the installation of PEV chargers. In addition to the plan, the associated Southern California PEV Atlas provides projections of PEV growth over time in each of the 15 subregions as well as predictions of PEV daytime travel to employment and retail destinations. This information gives planners a wealth of data to support building charging infrastructure where demand will be the greatest.

The SCS is a new element of the long-range plan that demonstrates the integration of land use, transportation strategies, and transportation investments within the Plan. The RTP/SCS is updated every four years to reflect changes in economic trends, state and federal requirements, progress made on projects, and adjustments for population and jobs. Transportation projects must be included in the RTP in order to qualify for federal and state funding.
