The Super NoVa Transit & TDM Plan envisions safe, strategic, and seamless mobility options for rail, transit, and TDM in the greater northern Virginia region.
Visioning Mobility Beyond Boundaries
The Super NoVa Transit & TDM Vision Plan development process kicked off in Fall 2011 and was completed in the Fall of 2012. DRPT initiated this study to look beyond traditional local, regional and state boundaries in terms of transit and TDM operations and planning. The plan presents a regionally coordinated and comprehensive transit and TDM vision supporting increased mobility and greater transportation choice in the greater Northern Virginia region. The Vision Plan development process considered the mobility needs of the super region today as well as its future needs based on anticipated development patterns, population and employment growth, and travel demand.
Public and stakeholder involvement was a significant component of the planning process. Public agencies, special interest groups, and citizens were engaged through participatory workshops during the planning process. Meetings with the public, interest groups, and agencies coincided with project milestones and decision points during the planning process. In addition to meetings, opportunities for input were offered through social media (Facebook and Twitter), online questionnaires, and the project website.
More than 1,000 public and agency comments were collected during the planning process. The Vision Plan represents a comprehensive approach to enhancing regional mobility through transit and TDM. Vision Plan recommendations include:
