SACOG joined us for a special presentation with SACOG's Director of Transportation Services, Matt Carpenter, to teach us about funding and planning our public transportation system. We were also joined by Antonio Johnson from the Federal Highway Administration to discuss the US Department of Transportation's review of SACOG's current Metropolitan and Transportation and Improvement Program (MTIP).
Our membership had a lot of questions about the role that SACOG plays in funding public transportation in our region and how we can be more involved.
