TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y. (WENY) -- Tompkins County is looking for public input about transportation needs and demands around the county.

Several public sessions are taking place, aiming to address transportation needs with a focus on removing barriers for low income and other underserved community members.  There is a public survey online for comment, found here, as well as several in person meetings for feedback from residents.

Tompkins County Chief Transportation Officer Frank Doldo stated, “The purpose of this project is to analyze existing transportation barriers in the community, specifically around the transportation needs and demands of Tompkins County residents. Previous plans have indicated that transit demand to and from employment, food sources, education, health care, and recreation, described in the Mobility Vision as social determinants of health, are not being met.”

This is a part of the 2024 - 2027 Mobility Vision project, and the meetings are open to all.  The full list of meeting times can be found below.
