Valley Connect 2.0

Connecting more people to more places

Transportation is about freedom. It is about being able to get where you need to go in a reasonable amount of time and at a reasonable cost. Public transportation is about maintaining freedom even as transportation costs and competition for open space increases.

Currently, automobile ownership is almost a requirement to fully participate in all the region has to offer. This reality requires public investments in wider roads, larger intersections, and private expenses in gas, car payments, insurance, and car repairs. It also leaves those who do not want to drive, or are unable to, with limited transportation options.

Public transportation, on the other hand, is accessible to all, can save families money, and can move more people in less space. Because transit is accessible to all, it can save space on the roadway and time at an intersection, ValleyConnect 2.0 is a plan to increase our residents’ freedom to move even while the region continues to add more jobs, people, and opportunities.

The Valley Regional Transit Board approved the final version of the ValleyConnect 2.0 plan on April 2, 2018.
