Unmet Transit Needs

Infographic explaining the Unmet Transit Needs Process

The San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG) determines the amount of public transportation funds available for allocation within the cities of Escalon, Lathrop, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Stockton, and Tracy, and the County of San Joaquin. Prior to disbursing these Transportation Development Act (TDA) funds, SJCOG must identify any unmet public transit needs that may exist in San Joaquin County. The Unmet Transit Needs (UTN) assessment is developed to ensure that all unmet transit needs that are "reasonable to meet" are met before funds are expended for non-transit uses, such as streets and roads. 

SJCOG reviewed comments in March 2021, and has created the first draft for FY 21/22 Unmet Transit Needs Assessment. The final draft of FY 21/22 Unmet Transit Needs Assessment is available HERE.


Comment collection for the upcoming 2022 Unmet Transit Needs Assessment is underway! Please take the survey, or email comments to utn@sjcog.org !
