It is definitely grant season! And while Circulate San Diego is fast at work submitting our own proposals to fulfill our mission of creating excellent mobility choices and vibrant, healthy neighborhoods, we are also writing many letters to support the grant applications of other agencies and organizations. Below is a roundup of the SANDAG grant proposals we are supporting.

Solutions for Congested Corridors Program - San Diego North Coast Corridor: Build NCC Phase 1

Trade Corridor Enhancement Program – Sorrento to Miramar Phase 2 Intermodal Improvements Project
This project is a critical improvement project located on the state’s busiest rail corridor. It closes a gap by building a second track and straightens several curves along the slowest section of the corridor between San Diego and Los Angeles. Further, the speed restrictions along this section restrict operational reliability and flexibility, which result in delays for both passenger and freight services.

Support for The Future of Mobility: Ride-Hailing Data Collection and Analysis
Transportation Network Companies (TNC) such as Uber and Lyft present great opportunities to improve mobility for local residents. This research would help transportation planners and the public to understand the impacts of TNCs. This effort will fill a crucial gap in the data necessary to plan for the growth of these services in our respective regions. To read the full letter, click here.
