Working together with its member jurisdictions, the Riverside Transit Agency, the Riverside County Transportation Comission, and other regional entities, WRCOG conducts various transportation studies and develops plans to help address the transportation, transit, and active transportation issues in Western Riverside County.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Planning Project
The BRT Project is a long-range study, based on 2035 growth projections, that identifies corridors in the WRCOG subregion that would be suitable for BRT service and determines the priority for BRT projects to be developed.
Western Riverside County Non-Motorized Transportation Plan
The Non-Motorized Transportation Plan provides a regional backbone network of bicycle and pedestrian facilities for enhanced transportation mobility options in Western Riverside County.
4 City Neighhborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) Transportation Plan
The 4-City NEV Plan presents a multi-jurisdiction transportation planning approach to leverage existing and future public street networks for maximum transportation benefit. The Plan identifies low speed connectors and potential NEV/bike lane backbone facilities within and between the cities of Corona, Moreno Valley, Norco, and Riverside.
Highway 395 Corridor Study for Southwest Riverside County
The Highway 395 Corridor Study establishes a comprehensive transportation and land use plan for the shared 16-mile, north-south corridor that runs parallel to I-15 in Southwest Riverside County. It will enable the four contiguous cities of Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Temecula and Wildomar to accomodate future growth by utilizing a range of transportation options and reducing transportation demand through better community design.
Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)
TOD is at the heart of many smart growth strategies. WRCOG is a regional leader in developing research and policy resources to assist local jurisdictions in planning around existing transit and preparing for future transit and alternative transportation.
