a connected multimodal region

Desired Outcomes

  • The regional transportation system is well-connected and serves all modes of travel.

    The transportation system integrates regional and local roadways and streets, transit (bus and rail), bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and air and freight rail linkages. The transportation system connects the region to the rest of the state and beyond, and will evolve to include future technology and mobility innovations as appropriate.

  • The transportation system is safe, reliable and well-maintained.

    Educational, enforcement and engineering approaches enhance safety to reduce crashes, serious injuries and fatalities. Coordinated operations and management of the system maximizes capacity and reliability for all users. Transportation system physical components are well-maintained to extend their useful life and provide a quality travel experience.

Connections for the future

Local innovations in mobility contribute to a multimodal region that supports healthy and active ways for people to get to transportation, employment, commerce, housing, education, cultural and recreational opportunities.

performance measures

Performance measures are critically important in monitoring the region’s progress toward Metro Vision themes and outcomes. They are used to obtain regular measurement of outcomes and results. They also generate reliable data to help local governments and partners evaluate policies, programs and initiatives. As part of its reporting on plan progress toward creating a connected, multimodal region, DRCOG will use the performance measures outlined below.

  • non-single occupant vehicle (sov) travel to work

    non-SOV mode share

    2014 Baseline | 25.1%

    2019 Observation | 25.7%

    2040 Target | 35.0%

  • vehicle miles traveled (VMT)

    VMT per capita per day

    2010 Baseline | 25.2

    2019 Observation | 25.4

    2040 Target | 10.0%

    decrease from 2010

  • travel time variation (TTV)
