Regional Mobility & Accessibility Scenarios Study

What if more housing were built closer to future jobs? What if new jobs
and housing were concentrated closer to public transit? A TPB study is
looking at these and other questions.

As the Washington region enjoys a continuing economic boom, transportation and land-use planners must grapple with new and evolving challenges. An examination of current trends suggests a daunting future characterized by many hours of driving in stop-and-go congestion as commuters travel longer distances between work and home. What if we could wave a magic wand and ease the transportation and land-use problems that are leading to these conditions? How would we shift the location of new jobs and households? What new transportation facilities would we build? What might alternative futures look like? The TPB's Regional Mobility & Accessibility Study is addressing these very questions.
