A connected community has a variety of transportation options connecting it to other communities. Potential transportation options include: carsharing, rideshare, carpooling, park and ride, on demand transit (dial a ride), local bus, express bus, rapid transit (BRT, LRT), commuter rail, personal vehicles, taxis, walking, and bicycling. The number, size and frequency of each of these options may change based on the type of community. In general the more densely populated a community is the more other transportation options become financially viable.

You can also read through your neighbors’ comments and comment on them. If you don’t have a specific comment but want to support someone else’s comment you can add a “1+” comment in reply to their comment. That way, the ideas that have the most community support should rise to the top. Please remember to be respectful of other people. Everyone’s ideas are worth hearing!
