TMD is currently working with the City of Santa Clarita Transit to develop the city’s latest Transportation Development Plan (TDP). Santa Clarita is one of the fastest growing cities in California (and the country), with many new and changing neighborhoods. Balancing investment in public mobility options (local bus, commuter bus, and on-demand services) with available resources and projected growth requires thoughtful consideration of community mobility needs, travel demand and equity concerns. TMD is combining a data-driven approach with a robust public input process to understand current ridership patterns, the local demand for transit, and transit’s role in broader regional travel patterns within Los Angeles County.
The TDP will help to guide the city’s investment in bus transit and other public mobility services over the next 10 years. Key objectives include ensuring appropriate service levels to new and changing communities, equitably serving the residents of the Santa Clarity Valley, and finding ways to strengthen Santa Clarita Transit’s role and position within the community. The final TDP is expected to be completed in Summer 2024.
