Have you ever found yourself needing to peruse the District’s Comprehensive Plan, the Fairfax County Transit Development Plan, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s long-range strategic plan, and a Purple Line map, but without the time to navigate multiple websites? Well now you’re in luck.
The Transportation Planning Board at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, which serves as a forum for regional government and transportation agencies to plan new roadways and transit priorities, has just created a website that serves as a one-stop shop for projects, processes, and documents related to D.C.-area transportation. The “information hub” is broken down into three categories—-“planning process,” “high-profile projects,” and “documents and resources”—-each of which has subsections for D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and WMATA.
It won’t tell you when your bus is coming, but for transit geeks in need of a comprehensive look at what’s coming down the pike, it’s a useful resource. Check it out here.
