Transportation & Mobility
Ensure that countywide transportation improvements are integrated with and support the Plan 2035 vision and land use pattern.
Expand and improve transit service, particularly on routes connecting Downtowns, the Innovation Corridor, and Regional Transit Districts in order to maximize the economic development potential and synergies between these areas.
Maintain levels of service standards for roads and highways as identified by Plan 2035.
Use complete and green street practices to design, operate, maintain, and retrofit the transportation network in order to improve travel conditions for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and vulnerable populations consistent with the surrounding area’s character.
Improve overall safety levels within the County’s transportation network.
Pursue a range of transportation facility and systems funding sources and strategies to maintain and enhance the existing transportation network in order to encourage the safe and efficient mobility of all persons.
Promote the use of low-carbon transportation methods countywide to improve air quality and traffic congestion. Public investment that supports innovative infrastructure systems should be targeted at Downtowns.
Ensure that minimum and maximum parking requirements for transit-accessible areas are appropriate to advance the overall goals of Plan 2035.
Improve mobility options for targeted population groups, particularly our elderly, mentally and physically disabled, and low-income households, in suburban and rural areas not served on a regular basis by transit.
