Our traffic issues are well-defined and I believe will be best addressed with a multi-faceted approach. In the urban ring, we must move the transportation system to the next level. Working with the City and UVA, we need to expand our coverage, especially in our growth areas. We also need to promote and expand Rideshare opportunities in rural portions of the County. Implementing the use of smaller buses that run more frequently on a regular schedule is an efficient use of resources and is economical. More long term, complex solutions such as capital improvement projects designed to alleviate congestion and continuing to expand multi-modal commuting opportunities for alternative transportation in the urban portions of the County must also be addressed.
