This workshop is the important kick-off of our regional Enhanced Transit Concept (ETC) program. Attendees should include jurisdictional partners, project managers, traffic engineers and planners who would be involved in future ETC projects and would benefit in a deeper understanding of how/why the program is being developed and how the tools can help improve transportation options throughout the region.
General topics will include the following:
- What is an ETC program and why does it help the region now?
- An explanation of the criteria used to develop the proposed universe of ETC projects in our region
- An explanation of the ETC toolbox and examples of how each tool could be applied in various contexts using both regional and national examples
- Overview of ETC process and timeline, how local jurisdictions will identify and put forward their priorities (drawn from proposed universe of projects), and how projects will move from prioritization and evaluation to design/implementation
