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.
Public transportation, on the other hand, can save families money and public transportation can move more people in less space. Because transit 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.View ValleyConnect 2.0 Plan (PDF)
