In December 2021, SANDAG passed its regional transportation plan. As you may know, the plan called for $165 billion to be spent on public transit. In order to pay for their ambitious project, SANDAG wants to include three tax increases. Also, most controversial, they wanted to charge people for every mile they drive in San Diego County. 

After public outcry, SANDAG passed the per-mile plan but announced they would look for alternative ways to fund their plan. They announced in December 2021, that they would report back within 6 months with a new funding mechanism. However, just last week, SANDAG announced they needed more time (next spring) to look at other alternatives. In the meantime, the per-mile tax is still part of their plan.

While the per-mile tax remains a contentious part of their proposal, SANDAG still plans to change 819 miles of lanes within San Diego’s freeways into toll lanes.
