LOS ANGELES – The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Thursday approved more than $40 million in funding for active transportation projects in the six-county region.

The funding, part of the $100 million a year being directed specifically to active transportation across California as part of Senate Bill 1, provides another major boost to local efforts to increase safety and access for people walking and biking. The SB1 funding nearly doubles the amount available for active transportation investments, and its quick disbursement will allow projects originally scheduled to start as late as 2021 to commence construction later this year.

Under the plan approved Thursday by SCAG’s Regional Council, $38.6 million will go to implement active transportation projects in the six counties during the 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 fiscal years. An additional $1.8 million will be used to help fund the planning of new projects.

Since Senate Bill 375 was passed in 2009, CARB has set and periodically updated targets at both the state and regional level for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. CARB has been working on an update to the target for the past year and, after a long collaborative process with state and regional leaders, has chosen an ambitious and achievable target for Southern California’s emission reduction.
