The TPB is conducting public engagement for the Visualize 2045 update in two phases. Through a survey and focus groups, the TPB first gathered information about public opinion on travel in a post-pandemic environment, transportation enhancements, and future factors such as climate change and connected and automated vehicles. TPB will engage residents (virtually) in an activity to gather public perspectives on the TPB’s policy priorities.
The public opinion survey was completed in fall 2020. Explore the preliminary findings:
What did we hear from Voices of the Region?
The full Voices of the Region survey report has been released:
The survey was followed by a series of focus groups to ‘get the story behind the data.’ This research in Phase I will identify recent changes in people’s travel habits in face of the COVID-19 pandemic and explores what the region’s residents want our region’s transportation future to look like.
TPB staff are planning Phase II outreach activities to engage residents online.
