Georgia 2050 Statewide Transit Plan
CLIENT: Georgia Department of Transportation
Purpose of Project
The purpose of the Georgia DOT 2050 Statewide Transit Plan was to coordinate with local governments, planning agencies, and transit providers to document transit needs across the state and prioritize future investments. The plan supports Georgia DOT’s multimodal planning efforts and identifies strategies to ensure all Georgians have access to public transit. The plan was developed for GDOT’s Intermodal Division.
Our Role on the Project
Modern Mobility Partners (MMP) assisted with the development of GDOT’s first comprehensive Statewide Transit Plan (SWTRP) which included a high-level overview of the urban and rural transit programs in the state and an assessment of future investment needs. A funding strategy was also developed for projects or strategies that are considered as part of the recommendations. MMP also developed a robust matrix of transit performance measures for consideration. The plan was completed in December 2020.
Unique challenges of this plan included identifying useful and quantifiable performance measures that align with the plan’s overall vision and developing a realistic funding strategy to support the plan. Our solutions effectively addressed these challenges by carefully selecting and vetting a wide variety of metrics to align with the vision, goals, and objectives and identifying baseline, low, medium, and high funding scenarios to understand the range of potential future funding levels and develop a realistic, financially feasible plan.
What Our Clients Say About Us
“The SWTRP Performance Measures Report is the product of thorough research, coordination with stakeholders, and consideration of GDOT’s goals and objectives. This document serves as a benchmark for the GDOT Transit Program and helps us track progress toward meeting program goals. It’s something that we reference often for a variety of uses.”
