George Washington Region Transit Policy Plan

FAMPO initiated the George Washington Region Transit Policy Plan to determine the most effective ways to improve transit and begin to develop a more balanced transportation system.

This study was conducted using projections of future development that were based on the land use policies current in effect for local governments in the Region. These projections indicated that future development will be similar to current development patterns, and will consist of low density development that will sprawl into currently undeveloped areas.
