    Default Super NoVa Transit and TDM Vision Plan - public meetings

    The Commonwealth of Virginia has embarked on the Super NoVa Transit and Transportation Demand Management Vision Plan study. The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT)-defined super region for this planning effort encompasses all of the localities comprising Northern Virginia and the localities extending from Northern Virginia to Caroline County on the south, Culpeper County on the west and Frederick County to the northwest. It also includes an effort in coordination with Maryland, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

    The Vision Plan will evaluate current transit service and transportation demand management (TDM) programs; existing and future land use, population, and employment conditions; travel patterns and trends; and projected travel demand as a basis for the development of a multi-horizon vision for transit and TDM in the super region. The multi-horizon vision plan will focus on the near-, mid- and long-term periods between today and 2040. It will identify a wide range of transit mode and transportation program enhancements for:

    - Local, express, rapid, and priority bus
    - Fixed guideway transit-Streetcar, light rail transit, heavy rail transit, commuter rail, and intercity passenger rail
    - Transportation demand management

    The Super NoVa Transit and TDM Vision Plan will recognize the purposeful connection between land use and transportation, today and into the future. The Vision Plan will identify realistic, but visionary, strategies for enhancing people's mobility through non-single occupant auto means under existing and future conditions. Planning efforts of the study will culminate in the development of recommendations for a wide range of transit modes as well as transportation demand management programs and infrastructure.

    The meetings below are still left - please come out and show your support for a fully networked bike infrastructure and full integration into multi-modal solutions (e.g., bike to bus/rail, bikes on bus/rail) where biking is often the first and last leg of a trip. Bike access to bus and rail stations should extend out to at least 8 miles from each stop/station. Some comments seemed to imply that riders might only bike in from 2 miles away or perhaps the most enthusiastic might bike as many as 5 miles. They need to hear real experiences from the horse's mouth!

    Did anyone go to this in Arlington yesterday? I shot an email to the Warrenton and Fredericksburg bike clubs this morning.

    Interesting that the Arlington meeting is the only one that was during the middle of the day. Were they trying to get commuters while they were at work?

    I sent an email to the Super NoVa staff expressing my disappointment that they held the meeting during the middle of a workday and asked that they hold another one in the evening so more people can attend.
