Statewide Multimodal Transit Plan
TxDOT has initiated an effort to create a Statewide Multimodal Transit Plan to provide multimodal solutions and statewide strategies for improved mobility and connectivity, with a planning horizon of 2050. The plan will pinpoint needs and opportunities for public transportation improvements and provide a framework for prioritizing future investments. The SMTP aligns with other ongoing statewide planning efforts including the Active Transportation Plan and Connecting Texas 2050, aiming to identify needs and gaps within the state’s existing transit system, account for anticipated demographic changes and technological developments, and provide more mobility options.
The plan will take a comprehensive look at all current and emerging forms of public transportation, supporting technologies, and the intersection between transit and other transportation modes, such as cycling and walking. It will serve as a fundamental framework for future transit plans, setting a new standard for informing and prioritizing investments.
Planning for our transportation future together
Public engagement is a critical component of the plan. TxDOT aims to align engagement methods with the plan development process and follow statewide regulations. The public will have the opportunity to provide input throughout the plan’s development in a variety of forms, including:
- Public surveys, website announcements/ updates, short videos
- Steering Committee Kickoff – Summer 2023 (up to 6 meetings)
- Five Topical Working Groups (5 meetings)
- Public Transportation Advisory Committee input, updates and recommendations (quarterly)
- 45-day public comment period
