The Albany Area Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) will guide transportation improvements over a 20-year period. The RTP will look at all the ways that people get around: in cars, with transit, or by walking or biking. The RTP will also look at freight and regional aspects of air, rail, and inter-city bus service. The project is looking closely at transit: visit the Transit Page for details.
The RTP will consider what exists today, estimate demand, identify future options, and make recommendations for a balanced and efficient transportation system.
The project is a collaborative effort between government agencies, cities, counties, and the broader community. It will build on good decisions that have already been made and create a common vision for the future of transportation in the area.
Citizen involvement is integral to development of the Albany Area Regional Transportation Plan. You can get involved with the project by joining the mailing list, or sharing your ideas. View the Project Handout for a brief summary.
