2017 Regional Progress Report
The Regional Progress Report is a report on key indicators useful for understanding changes in the region’s economic growth, development, and travel over the last several years. Transportation and travel have implications and impacts on many aspects of the economy, quality of life, and the environment.
The amounts, locations, and types of housing and job growth are important variables for understanding how a transportation system serves businesses and residents in the region and guiding decisions on how to invest in that system.
This progress report is designed to begin exploring questions such as: How have we recovered from the Great Recession compared to our California peers in terms of job growth and development? What are the trends for key travel indicators measured in the MTP/SCS? What are the trends for key development indicators measured in the Blueprint? How is travel choice and activity changing due to rapid changes in information and transportation technology?
