Transit Projects

Planning and building a 21st century transit system

A financially sustainable bus and rail transit system is essential for this region’s ability to compete economically with regions around the globe. The Council partners with local, state, and federal agencies to plan and build a bus and rail transit network that:  

  • Meets the demands of workers, businesses, students and a growing elderly population
  • Attracts jobs, talent and economic growth
  • Relieves traffic congestion
  • Reduces carbon emissions and improves air quality
  • Saves commuters money.

The Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) plays a key role in reviewing proposed transportation projects, and recommending projects to receive federal funding.

Focusing development along transitways

The region will get the most benefit from an expanded transit system if we also focus economic and housing development along transit lines.
