2022 Chittenden County Park and Ride Plan

5.6 MB
Year:
2022
Theme:
Park and Ride, TDM, Transit
Description:
Beginning in 2021, the CCRPC embarked on an update of the Chittenden County Park & Ride Plan. This plan identifies opportunities for improvements to the existing facilities and evaluates the potential for new facilities that will benefit commuters and residents throughout Chittenden County and the adjacent communities. The Plan created a vision statement for the purpose and function of park & rides, completed an inventory of existing facilities, prioritized a list of park & ride and intercept facilities, and created an implementation plan. The updated Plan incorporates elements from the 2011 Plan using a revised approach to account for the many changes in the demand for park & rides, remote work, and general changes in travel behavior.

Greenlining Shared Electric Mobility (CarShare VT)

1.2 MB
Year:
2022
Theme:
carsharing, Electric Vehicles, Transportation
Description:
CarShare Vermont used UPWP funding to support our efforts to better meet the transportation needs of households with lower incomes by conducting outreach about the expansion of our carsharing service at four affordable housing developments in the Burlington area, and to promote awareness about our MobilityShare membership, which provides free memberships and subsidized driving rates to residents of the properties (and to all income eligible households in the community). This study helped inform an MTI grant awarded by the Vermont Agency of Transportation in late 2020 to introduce electric carsharing onsite at the affordable housing sites to improve access to both our service and to EVs, recognizing that EV access through ownership may be impossible or undesired for many individuals and households.

I-89 Bolton and Milton Interchanges Assessment

5.4 MB
Year:

Theme:
Interchange, Interstate
Description:
Born out of the I-89 2050 Study, this assessment reviewed two interchange concepts, one in Milton near the West Milton Road bridge over I-89, and one in Bolton near the Bolton Valley Access Road. Both locations have previously underwent some form of study. However, the previous studies date back to the late 1980s/early 1990s. This assessment served to review modern geometric design standards and environmental requirements as they pertain to each conceptual interchange.

CCRPC Bicycle Count Data Analysis and Count Program Design Strategies

1.9 MB
Year:
2022
Theme:
Bicycle & Pedestrian, Transportation
Description:
In 2017, the CCRPC completed an update of the region’s Active Transportation Plan (ATP) with the goal of creating “a safe, comfortable, and connected regional network of pedestrian and bicycle routes that appeal to all ages and abilities.” Developing a “robust” bicycle count program was one of the key non-infrastructure recommendations in the ATP. The UVM Transportation Research Center (“TRC”) was contracted to evaluate current bicycle data collection efforts in the region, identify gaps and limitations, and make recommendations on how to develop a comprehensive bicycle count program that could better support the region’s bicycle planning objectives.

Transit Financing Study

1.9 MB
Year:
2021
Theme:
Transit
Description:
With the passage of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, there is expected to be a 35% increase in transit funding above the FAST Act investment levels; additional resources at the local level to serve as matching funds will likely be needed. Rather than just continuing to lean on existing sources of revenue, this renewed need for local funding offers the opportunity to overhaul how transit is funded both in the Chittenden County metropolitan area and in the rural parts of Vermont.

Year:
2021
Theme:
Electric Vehicles, Transportation
Description:
This report details CarShare Vermont’s key findings and recommendations for effectively integrating electric vehicles (EVs) into shared fleets following a research-turned-pilot project.

The report provides more than 12 months of data about how the EV was used and by whom, its environmental impacts, and the financial and operational implications of converting to an electric fleet, as well as our recommendations for policies that will better support the integration of EVs into carsharing systems.
