Imperial County Non-Motorized Transportation Framework Plan.

The plan provides an overview of the long range non-motorized plan for Imperial County. It will serve to guide other more-focused planning efforts geared toward decisions about service levels.

Imperial Valley Transit Vision – Final Report

The Imperial County Transit Vision provides an overview of the long range transit plan for Imperial County. It will serve to guide other more-focused planning efforts geared toward decisions about routes and service levels.

Imperial County Draft Coordinated Public Transit - Human Services Transportation Plan

This report is sponsored by Caltrans and is part of a planning effort of projects desinged to improve the mobility of individuals who are disabled, elderly or of low-income status. This plan focuses on identifying the needs specific to those population groups as well as identifying strategies to meet their needs. Starting in FY 2007, projects funded through FTA Sections 5310, 5316, and 5317 are required to be derived from a locally developed, coordinated public transit – human services transportaion plan. SAFETEA-LU guidance issued by the FTA indicates that the plan should be a “unified comprehensive strategy for public transportaion service delivery that identifies the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and individuals with limited income, laying out strategies for meeting those needs and prioritizing services.”

Public Transit Services Fare Analysis

This report presents an evaluation of the existing fare structure for IVT, AIM Transit and four of the local dial-a-ride services operating in Imperial Valley. It reviews operating costs, service levels, ridership and farebox revenues for all services and presents major trends for each service with emphasis on fares and farebox recovery ratios. This information provides insight for exploring options for fare changes in the Imperial Valley. The study consists of both a technical analysis and a public input process. The technical analysis consists of an evaluation of trends in ridership, revenues and the farebox recovery ratio for each service. Direction and guidance is provided by IVAG staff with input from the Social Services Transportation Advisory Council (SSTAC).

Winterhaven/Quechan Reservation Rural Connector

This report addresses the existing conditions, and mobility needs of Winterhaven/ Fort Yuma Reservation residents. The report also recommends service strategies for the study area that can be cost-effectively implemented. The service strategy model will be based on the direct administration of a range of service delivery or operating alternatives by Fort Yuma Reservation Tribal Services. The emphasis is on ensuring Tribal autonomy over the transportation services designed to serve their local and regional needs and the cost-effective use of the agency-based transportation initiatives currently found on the reservation.

Imperial Valley Regional Transportation Impact Fee Study

As the Imperial Valley continues to develop, several roadways are planned for improvements in order to support local growth in the immediate area to relieve congestion on transportation facilities located within the areas of benefit. In addition, to properly operate and maintain the existing transportation system will require additional revenues. Currently, the necessity to venture to alternative means of funding has been due to the decline of gas tax revenues, state budget crisis, and state highway account shortfall. The proposed study would provide the Imperial Valley the opportunity to provide alternative funds towards the current transportation system.

It is the intent for the Imperial Valley Regional Transportation Impact Fee Study to describe the roadways that will have deficient capacity in the future due to continued growth in both local and interregional travel. For these future deficient roadways, a fair share allowance of cost will be determined so that new development can pay their fair support of mitigation costs for the traffic impacts they create. In addition, improvement of local transportation projects will be considered.

Economic Impact of Delays at the Imperial County/Mexicali Border

The purpose of this study is to understand the economic significance of border delays. The economic impact of wait times will be measured by cross-border freight movements. For cross-border freight movements, interviews of trucking companies, custom brokers, key maquiladoras and US Customs and Border Protection will be conducted.

2007 - 20 Year Imperial County Transportation Plan Update

This study is a continuation of the 2002 Transportation Plan with the purpose to articulate support for current transportation improvement commitments and establish the foundation for future transportation funding decisions by proposing a set of transportation priorities. These priorities are intended to address the transportation needs of the Imperial County by responding to local opinions and concerns relevant to the improvement of mobility and safety for Imperial County residents.
