Today i went to a meeting in a series of workshops put on by my agency planning its future. One of the exercises gave us a map and ribbon to represent service frequency.

I wasn't sure how the workshop was going to work, but the map cut off at my home and didn't include all of my destinations. Half of the map covered places i find too far to take transit. The time trade-off is around 4x compared to driving and 2x more than biking.

But it was an interesting exercise.

Have you gone to meetings about transit in your city? What happened?

We talked a lot about frequency, transfers and directness. Our suggestions focused on frequent east west travel to get to the core north south routes. We have loads of frequent n/s routes and e/w routs are every 30 minutes or worse. It is typically faster to walk the e/w and that was a key complaint.

Not local. I've been in some Caltrans ones, but they're in the programming phase which is even before planning. They weren't specifically focused on transit specifically, more the total CTP2040 and how that would apply in the 5/10-year horizon at the MTP level as far as applying for Caltrans/federal funding for the upcomming programming cycle.
