Austin plan aims to reduce single-occupancy vehicle use, especially solo commuters from 74% now to 50% by 2039

Austin releases their first comprehensive multimodal transportation plan.  Atlanta, another heavily car-centric city without a robust transit system, released a long-term transportation plan last year to address the city’s immediate transportation needs and account for long-term regional growth. Like Austin’s plan, Atlanta’s includes elements to get people out of their cars and onto transit options, which requires expanding the existing system and improving service. Philadelphia, which also recently released a strategic transportation plan, the ASMP highlights the need for safe and affordable transportation options and equal mobility opportunities for citizens across the city.
