Investing in our Future
Due to population growth, a strong economy, and denser, transit-oriented patterns of development, demand for transportation – especially transit – is increasing rapidly. From 2000 to 2016, transit ridership in our region increased 80%. In comparison, the regional population only grew 20% over the same time.
To address this challenge, the Phase Two Plan makes new investments in every mode of transportation – transit, roads, walking and cycling – as well as maintains the existing transportation system in a state of good repair. The new services and infrastructure in the Phase Two Plan will be a major step in meeting our region’s transportation needs, especially as transit ridership continues to grow at record levels.
