We still have a narrow window of opportunity to buy right-of-way for transit; use existing shoulders; use existing rails; even put BRT lanes on the Meadowcreek Pkwy. A good system will be multi-modal. If you can’t walk to a bus/trolly; if you can’t get there on a safe bicycle lane; if you can’t park & ride, the system will be underused. The system MUST connect and serve all of our county growth areas.
There’s a lot more there, and it’s well worth reading in its entirety. The Central Virginia region is likely to look much, much different in fifty years than it does today. That our region needs to cooperate is a given; how we’re going to do it is the question.
