You spoke, we listened! During the development of the Worcester Now | Next long-range plan, Worcester residents identified transportation as a key concern for the City's future. The Mobility Action Plan for Safe, Equitable and Sustainable Transportation (MAP) is a year-long planning effort to develop a program of transportation policies, projects and actions to enhance the safety, sustainability and equity of the City's transportation network.
This summer, DTM staff spoke to hundreds of people around the City about what they see as transportation challenges and opportunities, as well as their vision and priorities for improving transportation in the City. DTM did this through focus groups, interviews, discussions at public events and a survey. We are currently consolidating and analyzing all the feedback that we received.
Up next, the City will develop the draft vision, goals and strategies for improving the transportation network. This process is informed by the public input we received as well as the data and analysis conducted on the existing system.
Missed us this summer at one of our engagement events? No worries. Please contact our department at firstname.lastname@example.org with your concerns and ideas. The next round of public outreach will occur this fall (see timeline on this page). If you would like us to come talk with a group about the Mobility Action Plan, please contact us at the mobility email.
