How are we doing

Encourage Sustainable Transportation Choices

While areas with good access to frequent transit service tend to opt for non-vehicle modes of transportation, the region is still largely car dependent. Future data will illustrate change.

Support the Safe and Efficient Movement of Vehicles

No recent data is available to illustrate change in road and vehicle use and safety.
