Regional mobility is critical to an
efficient, productive and
prosperous regional economy
It expands our options for employment and housing; it enables the connection of people, ideas, and innovation; and it shapes our quality of life.
Four Priorities for Our Region’s Transportation
Connect the Super Region:
Through faster, more reliable and robust transportation options, we will create a more closely connected super-region—starting by bridging the major downtown activity centers of Baltimore, Washington, and Richmond – that maximizes the economic benefits of expanded access to talent, housing, and intellectual and social amenities.
Improve the Consumer Experience:
Through an expanded, modernized, and coordinated network of transportation options cutting across our region’s jurisdictional boundaries, travel to and from daily destinations will be seamless and reliable, resulting in greater productivity and better quality of life.
Ensure Equitable Access:
Through affordable and diverse transportation options, every resident of the Capital Region — regardless of his or her community — will have access to the employment, education, and healthcare opportunities that enable economic mobility and opportunity.
By encouraging and enabling the consistent, seamless, and rapid adoption of mobility innovations across the region and its jurisdictional boundaries, we will enable and accelerate a highly connected super-region, an improved consumer experience, and more equitable access for all.
What percentage of commuters travel to a new jurisdiction for work?
Of the Capital Region’s 10.2 million residents, nearly 50% of those who commute cross county borders and 20% cross state lines daily to access their jobs.
How much is the Capital Region’s population expected to grow?
Over the next 20 years, the Capital Region is projected to add 2.4 million residents which will increase pressure on an already burdened system
