SEMCOG Seeking Input for Regional Transit Plan

SEMCOG Seeking Input for Regional Transit Plan

(SEMCOG, July 5, 2017)

SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, is seeking input from Southeast Michigan residents to aid development of the region’s long-range transportation plan. An online tool launched today provides opportunities to identify travel issues, rate approaches to improving the system, and rank overall priorities.

“To aid our region’s leaders in making decisions to improve Southeast Michigan’s transportation system, it is essential to receive input and perspectives as diverse as our region,” said Kathleen Lomako, Executive Director, SEMCOG.

Results of this survey will be used to help shape priorities for the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan. This plan, to be adopted in 2019, will describe how billions of dollars will be invested in the region’s transportation infrastructure and operations. As the transportation needs of the region evolve with changes in population and demographics, travel and lifestyle preferences, the economy, and technology, particular emphasis will be placed on:

Walking and biking

Traffic safety

Pavement condition

Transit

Environmental quality

Traffic congestion and operations

Freight and border crossings

This survey tool is available in English, Spanish, and Arabic.

SEMCOG is the only organization in Southeast Michigan that brings together all governments to solve regional challenges and enhance the quality of live for the seven-county region’s 4.7 million people.
