the regions blueprint for spending federal, state and regional
transportation dollars over the next 25 years. The current update,
called Transportation 2035, is in full swing, and Bay Area residents
now have the opportunity to weigh in online and make their voices
MTCs Web survey is a great way for all of the Bay
Areas residents from truck drivers to bicyclists
to get involved in the important transportation decisions
that affect their everyday lives, said MTC Chair and Napa
County Supervisor Bill Dodd.
The online survey asks participants questions about greenhouse
gas emissions and global warming, housing, improving traffic congestion,
and planning and transportation funding priorities in the region.
Participants also may compare their personal answers with the
results of a telephone poll of 1,800 Bay Area residents conducted
