OVERVIEW OF WORKSHOP BREAKOUT SESSIONS ON: PLANNING - METHODS TO MEET FUTURE MARKETS

The topic of these breakout sessions was "How Will (or Should) Transportation Systems Change the Way We Are Doing Business to Meet the Changing Needs of the Marketplace?" Session participants identified the following issues and barriers: plans and planning processes lack credibility and buy-in and are difficult to implement; the public process in planning has gotten out of hand; planners are not trusted or respected by transit operators and others who are responsible for living with the results; the functional areas of most agencies still reside in their individual silos with little, often ineffective communication between functions; and the power, identities, and potential impacts of transportation have been badly fragmented. Solutions identified by participants are listed.
