Following the planning process established during the San Joaquin Blueprint Study, Fresno COG’s Public Transportation Infrastructure Study (PTIS) began in earnest at the end of 2008 in an effort to identify strategies for transportation investments and land use policies that would result in measurable reductions in vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and improve mobility choices for greater Fresno County residents. Improving transportation choices for Fresno County and City residents means taking transit, bicycling and walking more attractive than driving alone for every trip. And less reliance on the automobile translates to air quality improvements, setting achievable benchmarks for reducing greenhouse gases.
The PTIS Study makes recommendations for investments, the timing of those investments, and funding sources augmenting Measure C sales tax revenue to pay for them. In addition, the PTIS study makes policy recommendations that will be important to be adopted by City and County elected officials and planning administrators in order to shape future growth in such a way that it supports the transit investments.
