Transit Connections Focus Group

Participants were invited to take part in the Transit Connections Focus Group to provide feedback to TDOT staff on proposed actionable items for Mayor and Council consideration aimed to support the success and growth of the Frequent Transit Network. Through this effort, discussions will focus on opportunities to integrate and strengthen transportation planning, investments, and operations across multiple modes, including transit, active transportation, first-/last-mile mobility options, and parking.
