California conducts web transit survey

Posted on June 10, 2008

  

The Oakland, Calif.-based Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is conducting an online survey, designed to help regional planners and Commission members finalize a new long-term regional transportation plan for the Bay Area.

 

The survey will help guide development of a new regional plan, known as Transportation 2035, which will chart the course for Bay Area transportation investment through 2035.

 

MTC expects about $220 billion of local, state and federal funds to be available for transportation projects and programs around the Bay Area from 2010 through 2035. $190 billion of the total already is committed — through voter mandates, state law or MTC policy — to maintaining and expanding the regional transportation system. This leaves about $30 billion of discretionary revenues available for transportation investment over 25 years. The survey will help determine how these funds are spent.

 

The survey can be found at www.mtc.ca.gov/T2035 .
