Welcome to the Stanislaus Council of Governments!

Welcome to the Stanislaus Council of Governments!

The Stanislaus Council of Governments (StanCOG) is a council of city and county governments that was established to address regional transportation issues.

StanCOG is comprised of the cities of Ceres, Hughson, Modesto, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson, Riverbank, Turlock and Waterford, and Stanislaus County.

StanCOG is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) and the Local Transportation Authority (LTA) for the Stanislaus region.

New Transportation Investments are Needed Throughout Stanislaus County

New Transportation Investments

Revenues available to operate, maintain and improve our transportation system have not kept up with the needs of our community.

On November 8, 2016, voters were asked to approve a 1/2 cent sales tax to address those needs.

Communities that have local transportation funds are able to do more themselves and are more successful in competing for funding, leveraging a larger share of state and federal dollars.

The Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters has announced that Measure L passed with 71.95% of voters in favor. This represents the largest win for a transportation tax measure in this election cycle as well as the largest percentage win of any first-time County since 1989. The 1/2 cent sales tax will take effect on April 1, 2017.
