Event Tonight: Latino Transportation Needs in Regional Planning

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is currently in the comment period of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). This twenty year plan (up to 2035) will set a long term framework for transportation investments for the six county SCAG- region (comprised of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties).

Latinos are a growing part of this region which will influence mobility patterns. We need to ensure that these needs will be addressed in the next cycle of the RTP.

Please join us for a lively discussion and presentation on the RTP and Latino mobility patterns.

DATE: TONIGHT!

TIME: 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.
