Tell USDOT trails are transportation

The U.S. Department of Transportation has been working on their strategic plan for FY 2014 to FY 2018 since early this spring.  Developing and implementing our strategic plan is an important step in helping the Department address key priorities that represent the diverse interests of stakeholders across the country.

Transportation is an engine for growing our economy and creating American jobs. Every day, people and businesses rely on a multi-modal transportation system to travel and to move goods to consumers at home and abroad.

For the next few weeks, you can review the plan and submit your ideas and comments at the DOT Strategic Plan Online Dialogue.  The dialogue also provides an opportunity to read and respond to what others are saying about the plan. Your participation will help USDOT shape the future of transportation in America.

This is an important opportunity to remind USDOT that multiple-use trails play a significant role and contribute to the nation’s transportation system.

You can read more about USDOT’s  Strategic Plan Online Dialogue in their Fast Lane blog.

Keep an eye out for a blog post on Parks & Trails New York’s comments  on the plan. You can read more about our bike and pedestrian advocacy agenda by visiting us at http://www.ptny.org/advocacy/agenda.shtml.
