Interactive survey addresses Broward’s long-term transportation needs

 

Through October 24, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (Broward MPO) is seeking public input through its interactive, online survey about the future of Broward’s transportation system. Survey responses will provide valuable insight about the public’s preferences and will help guide decisions about the future of mobility and connectivity in Broward. In appreciation for participation, survey respondents are entered into a drawing to win $500.

“The Broward MPO is committed to listening to the community about transportation issues and solutions,” said Greg Stuart, executive director at the Broward MPO. “Through our online survey, we are providing a convenient outlet for people to have a voice as a way to create positive improvements to our transportation system.”

As part of the Broward MPO’s public outreach initiative, Speak Up Broward, the online survey is designed so that participants can learn about transportation issues and express their opinions about what they think should be priorities when making decisions, what types of improvements should be made in the future, and what is the best way to address Broward’s long-term transportation needs.

Also as part of the Speak Up Broward initiative, the Broward MPO just concluded “Let’s Talk Transportation,” a four-part televised eTownHall series featuring panels made up of top state and local officials and business leaders, including Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Rep. Lois Frankel, and Commissioners Chip LaMarca, BarbaraSharief and Richard Blattner. Panelists responded to viewers’ questions submitted over the phone, on social media, and through a live chat. Questions and comments varied in scope, and included topics such as transit routes, the Tri-Rail Coastal Link, All Aboard Florida, pedestrian safety, bus stop upgrades, funding, and the needs of transportation disadvantaged individuals.
