New Visions

Regional Transportation Plan

How can we make the Capital Region a better place by investing in transportation? CDTC, the metropolitan planning organization for New York’s Capital Region, recently approved a 25-year transportation plan called "New Visions 2040." The New Visions Plan supports keeping our highways and bridges in good condition; providing high-quality transit service, and building what we call "complete streets" — streets that are designed for cars, as well as for walking, bicycling and transit.

New Visions describes the transportation investment needed for sustainable regional economic growth. The region has many assets: good transportation, strong urban areas, affordable and diverse housing locations, good schools, colleges and universities, ease of mobility, modern air and rail transportation facilities, cultural and recreational opportunities and a clean environment. These are significant assets in planning for a quality region.
