HQTA Pilot Project

IMAGE: HQTA Pilot Project

The 2016-2040 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, adopted by SCAG in 2016, anticipates a significant amount of new housing, population and employment growth to occur in High Quality Transit Areas (HQTAs). HQTAs, which feature frequent transit service or major transit stations are located in communities throughout the SCAG region.

To help implement the vision for a sustainable, transit-oriented future, SCAG invites eligible communities to apply for the HQTA Analysis Project. Working with a consultant team, SCAG will partner with up to five pilot project sites to develop HQTA Vision Plans. The Vision Plans will identify active transportation improvements, redevelopment strategies, and implementation plans that will enable communities to take full advantage of the transit investment, and tap into regional and state funding opportunities and technical support. The overall goal will be to develop plans that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and vehicle miles traveled.
