Atlanta — Jan 09, 2023
The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is asking metro Atlanta residents to share feedback in an online survey designed to inform an update to the regional Transportation Demand Management Plan.
The plan update, “Mobility Connections: A Plan for Expanding Opportunity,” aims to help local governments, transportation agencies, businesses, and community partners better meet the mobility needs of metro Atlanta residents. Throughout 2022, the plan has completed an evaluation of commute patterns and other travel behaviors and identified changes that could reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and increase access to jobs and services.
“We must improve mobility options if we are to successfully build a more equitable region, improve public health, and create a stronger, more resilient economy,” said Roz Tucker, Managing Director of Mobility Services at ARC. “We appreciate the robust feedback from our region’s residents into this TDM plan during the first phase. Now we seek additional public input to ensure that we are heading in the right direction to improve regional travel.”
The plan update is now in its final recommendations and implementation planning phase and is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2023.
The online survey period will end on January 20 to capture public input during this phase of the planning process. Community feedback will help ARC to create better policies and programs that meet the needs of all who live, work, and plan in the region.
The first 50 participants to complete the survey will receive a $25 gift card. All other survey participants will be entered into a raffle to win one of 50 $25 gift cards.
