SLOCOG endeavors to maximize the efficiency of the existing transportation system through the implementation of:
Demand Management (Rideshare)
System Management (P&R lots)
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
These three programs increase the efficiency of the existing transportation network. Lower-cost investments in existing transportation facilities, which can be implemented in the near-term will help reduce the need for higher cost, major capital investments. An increased focus on these three transportation programs will increase the efficiency of the overall transporation system and help create convenient alternatives.
SLOCOG's ongoing monitoring program (Performance Measures) supplements these programs by better assessing existing conditions, the effectiveness of improvements and allows us to make the necessary adjustments to ensure that the region's investment decisions are germaine and consistent with regional policies.
