Let Us Know Your Transportation Priorities as We Plan for the Future!

The Grand Valley Metro Council (GVMC) is pleased to announce that it has begun developing the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) for the Grand Rapids region, which outlines funding and priorities for all modes of transportation for the next 25 years. As part of the MTP development process, we will be evaluating road conditions, congestion, safety, freight movement, passenger rail, air travel, non-motorized, transit, and other modes of transportation, along with input from the public.   

So please take our survey and let us know your priorities as we plan for the future and spread the word. Everyone who completes the survey will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing to win one of two $25 Meijer gift cards.

GVMC will keep the public informed during the development of the MTP, which is expected to be completed by March of 2020, and offer numerous opportunities for area residents to get involved in the planning process or provide input. GVMC staff will send out email updates to our Interested Citizen/Agency Group, hold public meetings, and have a presence at community events to get feedback from the public. To join our mailing list, please visit our Public Involvement page. The public will be able to submit comments in person, online, over the phone, or by mail, at any time during the development of the MTP.
