Mid-year crime rates released
After several consecutive years of declines, crime rates in San Diego County are on the upswing in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period last year – however, both violent crime and property crime rates are still the second lowest in the past ten years, according to a SANDAG report released Aug. 29.

Big infusion of sand coming to local beaches
Between September and December, more than 1.4 million cubic yards of high-quality sand will be placed on the region’s shoreline from Oceanside to Imperial Beach. The project will restore eroded beaches, support local tourism, preserve recreational opportunities, and protect public and private infrastructure from storm damage.

New train timetables make travel easier
Planning travel by rail in Southern California is now much easier with the publication of the Southern California Passenger Rail System Map and Timetables.

Construction has begun for I-15 BRT
Construction is underway to upgrade the Del Lago and Rancho Bernardo transit stations in preparation for the 2014 launch of Bus Rapid Transit service in the I-15 corridor.

FasTrak® transponders available at Costco
FasTrak transponders, which allow motorists to pay tolls electronically while traveling on South Bay Expressway and I-15 Express Lanes, are now available for sale at three Costco locations in Chula Vista and La Mesa.

Commute choices made a difference
San Diego County residents who carpooled, vanpooled, walked, biked, or took public transit to work or school and tracked their trips through the SANDAG iCommute program made a big difference during the past fiscal year.
