Public input sought for traffic plan

Caltrans is inviting public input to identify infrastructure investments that will improve access to transit, encourage its use and augment its speed and reliability. 

An online public survey includes asking participants to rank potential transit improvements in order of preference. 

To increase speed and reliability of transit trips, for instance, the poll asks users to rank which things they’d like to see more: managed lanes, transit signal priority, bus-on-shoulder, queue-jump lanes or dedicated transit lanes.

The survey can be taken at

The survey is also posted on the Caltrans website and is available in English, Spanish and Chinese. 

Groups or organizations that would like to request a presentation on the transit plan are invited to contact Tyler Brown at [email protected]
