Development of Actions

Input from the public, community leaders, government stakeholders and employers, combined with research about established best practices and innovative new approaches, informed the action development process.

The mobility action process was supported by multiple stakeholders at each step. The PMT guided the direction and reviewed technical progress throughout, and the TAC and SAG shared input at key transition points. Many action ideas came from the more than 2,000 responses collected through our community survey.


The PMT is comprised of representatives from each of three counties, and
multi-jurisdictional agencies/organizations

The SAG is comprised of representatives from employer and institutional
stakeholders, including major employers, employer groups, community benefit
groups, and other private sector stakeholders within the study area:

Linking Actions to the MAP Vision

Each goal associates with several specific and measurable performance metrics. In the refinement process, each mobility action is rated on its directness of connection to each of MAP’s goals.

Goal 1: Reliability

  • Consistency of average travel time at AM peak

  • Percentage of time existing HOV lanes operate above 45 mph

  • On-time performance of transit using the corridor

  • Customer-perceived reliability of US-101

Goal 2: High Capacity Options

  • Person throughput (general purpose lanes)

  • Person throughput (Express Lanes)

  • Average vehicle occupancy

  • Transit ridership on parallel north-south corridors

Goal 3: Healthy and Sustainable Communities

  • Collisions, including bike and ped, at highway access points

  • Bike mode share

  • Walk mode share

  • Rate of asthma attacks

  • Traffic density

Further, feedback from community leaders gets incorporated using the STEPS (Spatial, Temporal, Economic, Physiological, Social) framework, which categorizes five barriers faced by users of the transportation network. To overcome these barriers, proposed equity actions leverage investment in mobility actions to serve the community’s most vulnerable populations.

Getting Ready for Action

To prepare 101-MAP partners for action and inform priorities, the PMT assessed four key elements of each action. The scoring methodology for each is described in detail in this Briefing Book appendix.

Its readiness for implementation

Its costliness with respect to operational funding

Its potential lead implementers

Its potential to generate new revenue

Combined, this process generates a mobility action scorecard, which informs future prioritization and implementation actions.
