Goal: To link land use and transportation planning to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from passenger vehicles.

Recent Key Accomplishment

  • SBCAG worked with LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency and Amtrak to re-time the Pacific Surfliner to implement peak hour commuter rail service between Ventura County and Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, and Goleta. The availability of the rail service allows more options for Ventura commuters, which may relieve pressure on U.S. Highway 101.
