Transportation poll online now through January 9

Got opinions? The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) wants to hear them. MTC is hosting a Web survey on a variety of issues related to transportation, the environment and land development in the Bay Area. What actions do you think the Bay Area should take to relieve traffic congestion, focus future development, and improve the region's transportation network? Now is your chance to tell key decision makers your priorities.

Every four years, MTC updates its regional transportation plan, the region's blueprint for spending federal, state and regional transportation dollars over the next 25 years. The current update, called Transportation 2035, is in full swing, and Bay Area residents now have the opportunity to weigh in online and make their voices heard.

"MTC's Web survey is a great way for all of the Bay Area's residents - from truck drivers to bicyclists - to get involved in the important transportation decisions that affect their everyday lives," said MTC Chair and Napa County Supervisor Bill Dodd.

The online survey asks participants questions about greenhouse gas emissions and global warming, housing, improving traffic congestion, and planning and transportation funding priorities in the region. Participants also may compare their personal answers with the results of a telephone poll of 1,800 Bay Area residents conducted by MTC.

To participate in the MTC Web poll now through January 9, 2008, log on to
www.mtc.ca.gov/T2035. In addition to the English version, the online survey is available in Spanish and Chinese. Don't miss out on the opportunity to help create a shared vision for the region's transportation network that will help protect the environment, preserve our quality of life and improve mobility over the next 25 years.

MTC is the transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
