Commuters coming in and going out of San Joaquin County have increased in recent decades. In the early 1980s, fewer than 10,000 county residents commuted outside the county for work. Today as of now, that number exceeds 600,000 commuters coming into and leaving San Joaquin County daily. As the Northern California economy integrates, commuting is critical for planning and economic development. More commuters create transportation infrastructure challenges and opportunities to leverage our regional advantages.
