Good to Go

This article presents a review of recent political and funding initiatives for transportation in California. Focus is on Governor Schwarzenegger’s 2005 ‘Go California’ which is embodied in the Strategic Growth Plan and represents efforts to improve mobility in the state. Planners have concluded that the most serious travel delays will occur in Southern California, an area which has witnessed increases in recent population growth, a lack of adequate public transit, and growth in truck traffic due to an increase in port activity at the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach. The article describes key elements of Proposition 1B, officially known as the Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality and Port Security Bond Act, which will bring in funds to reduce congestion, enhance freight movement, boost public transportation, and improve safety and security.
