Regional Transportation Options Plan

Latest News

The Advisory Committee kicked off the project in March and the project team held interviews with a diverse group of stakeholders. We will use this information to create a public survey and to guide upcoming focus groups. Stay tuned for more information!

The Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) is creating a Regional Transportation Options Plan to assess the feasibility of transportation demand management (TDM) options and recommend an implementation approach. [Click here to learn more about TDM.] This will include prioritized actions, proposed timeline, anticipated costs, and responsible entities. The outcomes of this project will advance the recommendations of the 2023 Metropolitan Transportation Plan and the implementation plan of the Chittenden County I-89 2050 Study by evaluating the actions and recommendations and developing steps to move the actions towards implementation. Investing in TDM options will also help the State achieve the carbon reduction requirements set forth in the Global Warming Solutions Act (Act 153 as Enacted).

Specifically, we will look at the feasibility, cost, and necessary actions to implement these aspirational TDM measures from the I-89 2050 Study and MTP:

  • Increase telework share by 50%
  • 90% of households in Existing Developed Areas
  • Double walking & biking trips
  • Triple transit service
  • Increase employer sponsored TDM participation
  • Reduce supply of residential parking and increase cost of paid parking
  • Implement a mileage-based fee to replace gas tax
