Connect Arlington: A Transportation Vision Connecting People and Places
On September 6, 2016, Arlington’s Mayor and City Council formed the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), composed of 31 residents and community stakeholders. The Committee was tasked with developing a vision to help shape the future of transportation in the City of Arlington.
Over the course of 12 months, the TAC went through an extensive process to articulate community needs, gather information from a variety of sources, analyze data, and consider potential solutions to Arlington’s transportation challenges. This report is the culmination of that effort.
The following recommendations were formally adopted by the Transportation Advisory Committee and comprise the Committee’s transportation vision for the City of Arlington. The recommendations should serve as guidance for the City Council, as they craft a specific service plan which takes into account funding options, operational constraints and other details that will ultimately impact the service plan. While the Committee discussed various policy issues and developed some guidance on those issues, the long-term vision was the primary focus of the Committee.
