Strategy 5

Statement

Transit and Transportation Demand Management

Description

Strategies to enhance transit and transportation demand management (TDM) programs are important elements of the M/RTP. These strategies include expanding fixed-route transit, paratransit, and Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) programs in the greater Yakima metropolitan area. Expanding the availability and types of transportation choices in and between communities throughout the Yakima Valley is a priority for the region. Recent successes of Yakima Transit route expansions have resulted in the independant creations of Selah Tansit and Union Gap Transit. Future expansion of transit routes into other communities are included in the M/RTP.
