Regional and local plans promote regional transit and transit-oriented development. To help accomplish these outcomes, Capital Region Sustainable Communities will commission studies and conduct planning and design to promote enhanced transit including bus rapid transit and transit-oriented development along regional transportation corridors, better connect low-income neighborhoods and communities of color to employment and activity centers, and to foster redevelopment that addresses neighborhood needs.
