North County Carpool Vanpool Program
- Project Sponsor: SBCAG Traffic Solutions Division
- 30 Year Estimated Measure A Funding Amount: $2 million
The program will help reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and expand commuter choices on North County roads and highways through the formation of carpools and vanpools and by facilitating the use of transit services, bicycle and pedestrian options, telecommuting and flexible work schedules. Whenever possible, funds will be used in partnership with employers that are seeking to improve employee retention and mitigate the jobs-housing imbalance by expanding commute options for their employees.
Funds will be used for planning, implementation, education, marketing and incentives to increase use of these options. An annual report would be published quantifying the effectiveness of the program to ensure that performance measures are being met. It is intended that program funds be used with South Coast Program funds to match federal, state, local, and private funding to maximize the number of commute options implemented.
