RTP/SCS: What's Next for the Inland Region?

April 30, 2013

Rick Bishop, Anne Mayer, Raymond Wolfe Leaders from three Inland transportation planning agencies – The San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) and the Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) -- identified next steps and challenges in meeting objectives of the 2012-2035 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS) at the April 30 Randall Lewis Seminar Series.

Rick Bishop (left), Executive Director of WRCOG, Anne Mayer (center), Executive Director of RCTC, and Raymond Wolfe (right), Executive Director of SANBAG, spoke before a near-capacity audience on the challenges they see in meeting the RTP/SCS goals and objectives.

The RTP/SCS, unanimously approved last year by the Regional Council of the Southern California Association of Governments, contains a regional commitment for the broad deployment of zero- and near-zero emission transportation technologies in the 2023–2035 timeframe, and outlines an aggressive strategy for technology development and deployment to meet that goal.

The RTP/SCS also includes a strong commitment to reduce emissions from transportation sources to comply with SB 375, improve public health, and meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards as set forth by the federal Clean Air Act.
