Transportation Demand Management

Collaboration with Local Agencies

SANDAG supports local agencies including cities, transit operators, universities, and the military with transportation demand management (TDM) planning and pilot project deployment.

Regional Micromobility Coordination

Micromobility services like dockless bikeshare, e-scooters, and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) have quickly become popular mobility choices in the San Diego region. They are low-speed, zero-emission mobility solutions that play an important role in the mobility hub concept. A Regional Micromobility Coordination has been established to coordinate with local stakeholders on best practices for effective micromobility operations and data sharing.

Mobility Hubs

Mobility hubs are places where transit and other shared mobility services, amenities, and supporting technology converge to offer a seamless travel experience. They help bridge the distance between high-frequency transit and an individual’s origin or destination. Learn more about current SANDAG mobility hub planning efforts:

Western Chula Vista Mobility Hub Pilot Project (in progress)

SANDAG is developing an operational concept, environment, and requirements for a mobility hub concept in western Chula Vista. The mobility hub will leverage technology and new transportation services to expand personal mobility and improve access to transit. The concept will evaluate the full range of available TDM and Transportation Systems Management strategies and mobility hub features and services to create a holistic framework of support infrastructure and technology improvements (communications systems, functional systems) for managing the project area. Once these deliverables are completed, SANDAG will have the foundation for strong grant applications to seek funding for implementation.

North County Mobility Hub Pilots (in progress)

SANDAG is partnering with the North County Transit District (NCTD) to pilot mobility hub services at some NCTD stations. The first pilot project, the Carlsbad Connector, launched in August 2019. It offers an on-demand shuttle connection between the Carlsbad Poinsettia COASTER station and nearby business parks.

NEV Planning Legislation

Neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) are low speed motorized vehicles that have four wheels and can reach speeds of up to 25 mph. They offer a zero-emission mobility option that is convenient for making short trips within a community. NEVs appear throughout the SANDAG Regional Mobility Hub Strategy as a clean energy mobility option for urban and suburban communities alike.

In 2018, SANDAG sponsored Senate Bill 1151 (Bates) to authorize any city within San Diego County to establish a NEV transportation plan. These plans identify where NEVs can safely operate in a community while determining opportunities for implementation of NEV infrastructure including parking, dedicated lanes, and more. More information about NEV planning and related resources can be found at

Carlsbad TDM Program (2018)

SANDAG collaborated with the City of Carlsbad to develop a TDM program in support of the city’s Climate Action Plan. The program includes a TDM ordinance and accompanying handbook aimed at reducing the number of Carlsbad employees that drive alone to and from work. The ordinance applies to non-residential development projects where employees produce a minimum of 110 average daily trips and requires developers to submit a TDM plan.

Carlsbad Parking Management Plan (2017)

In support of the Village and Barrio Master Plan vision, the City of Carlsbad and SANDAG partnered to develop a Parking Management Plan (PMP) for the Carlsbad Village, Barrio, and beach areas. The PMP provides implementable near-term and long-term strategies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the parking system.
