Transportation Partnership Programs


The Transportation Partnership Programs (TPP) is comprised of two complementary programs – the County Transportation Commission (CTC) Partnership Program and the Regional Pilot Initiatives (RPI) Partnership Program. The CTC Partnership and RPI Programs target investments towards critical infrastructure that improve mobility, quality of life, and economic potential for the 19 million people who call this region home and the 3.7 million new residents projected by 2045.

CTC Partnership Program

Consistent with the goals and objectives of REAP 2.0, SCAG developed the CTC Partnership Program with the region’s six County Transportation Commissions to fund the development of plans, programs, pilot projects, and certain signature greenhouse gas-/vehicle miles traveled-reducing capital projects with a strong nexus to housing. The CTC Partnership Program will provide immediate benefit to the region by supporting transformative planning activities aligned with strategies identified in Connect SoCal, which can be implemented quickly to advance new concepts for reducing vehicle miles traveled while simultaneously achieving other program goals for REAP 2.0.

On July 6, 2023, SCAG’s Regional Council approved funding recommendations for 33 projects, including fully funding 27 projects, and partially funding six proposals.  Project awards are split across the three eligible projects categories: $35 million invested in projects to increase transit ridership, $36 million invested in projects to realize multimodal communities, and $9 million invested in projects to shift travel behavior.

Regional Pilot Initiatives Program

The RPI Partnership Program is focused on demonstrating innovative, next generation technologies and models of regional significance, specifically those with the potential to change transportation and housing paradigms towards building more sustainable communities.

RPI projects will be managed by SCAG with participation from local partners. SCAG envisions RPI projects to build on existing studies and plans developed by SCAG. 

On July 6, 2023, the SCAG Regional Council approved SCAG’s RPI Framework, which highlights six program areas: 

  1. Big Data Research  
  2. Accelerating Active Transportation 
  3. Mobility Hubs 
  4. Mobility Wallets and Universal Basic Mobility (UBM) 
  5. Curb Space Management 
  6. Transportation Demand Management Technology 

Additional details on SCAG’s development of the RPI Program can be found here. Next steps include continued outreach, partner identification, and project scoping.
