About Plan 2040
NYMTC’s 2014-2040 Regional Transportation Plan, entitled A Shared Vision for a Sustainable Region, was adopted on September 4, 2013. It includes the NYMTC members’ vision for the planning area and lays out the long-range framework for maintaining and improving the region’s transportation system: its roads, bridges, freight and mass transit facilities, and its bicycle and pedestrian networks. It identifies the transportation improvement concepts, projects and policy recommendations that will address the region’s long-term growth challenges and needs – an initial step to bringing federal transportation dollars into the area. The Plan includes forecasts of the region’s population, jobs, housing, commuting patterns and land use; how anticipated growth can be addressed through projects, proposals and studies; and how these can be financed over the life of the Plan.
The Plan 2040 was developed using input provided by a broad range of key stakeholders, along with NYMTC members and staff. The public involvement process included traditional opportunities to provide input along with in person Open House meetings throughout the region and a web-based component that brought in numerous comments and suggestions from around the region, and beyond. This public involvement and participation were vital to making this picture of the future as accurate as possible.
