Moving Transit Forward Comment Form Round 2 Community Workshops

Your thoughts and comments are very important to the success of our long-range plan. During today’s presentation, you will be asked to share your opinions on several possibilities for enhancing the regional transit system. When asked by Metro presenters, please answer the corresponding question on this form. Your answers will help shape the final “Moving Transit Forward” Long-Range Plan. Thank you! 1. The project team formulated a list of eight key values for evaluating whether specific projects should be included in the Long-Range Plan. They are listed below. Are there any ‘values’ you would change, delete, or add to this list? Projects should: A. Provide transit access to the greatest number of people and a range of transit markets. B. Reposition transit as a vital regional asset. C. Provide enhanced mobility options to transit-dependent citizens throughout the region. D. Be cost-effective and balance increased ridership with capital improvements and operating costs. E. Potentially attract federal funding. F. Support development in the St. Louis region. G. Help mitigate pollution and congestion. H. Contribute to the strengths of the region’s core. Comments:
