Megaregion Working Group
The Megaregion Working Group is a 12-member coalition that consists of four board members from the San Joaquin Council of Governments, four board members from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments, and four commissioners from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. The working group represents 16 counties and 136 cities with a total population of nearly 11 million people stretching from the Bay Area to the Central Valley and Sierra Nevada foothills.
The working group is responsible for conducting a number of state and federally mandated planning and programming responsibilities, including the maintenance of long-range Regional Transportation Plans and Sustainable Communities Strategies.
