TransitVision 2050 Final Report Now Available
Copies of the Final Report of APTA’s TransitVision 2050 Task Force and accompanying DVD – the culmination of nearly two years of effort – will be distributed soon to all APTA member designees.
As part of developing this vision, APTA conducted an extensive dialogue within its membership and collaborated with many partners. The outreach efforts for this report – approved last October by the Executive Committee – used contemporary communication techniques to gather input, which included chat rooms, blogs, webinars, video conferences, and streaming videos.
Written in the voice of someone describing a future world, the report outlines a vision that “in 2050, America’s energy efficient, multi-modal, environmentally sustainable transportation system powers the greatest nation on earth.”
The online version of this report can be found here.
