Why is Madison in Motion Needed!

Madison, like all cities, is ever changing. Growth over the next 40 years is projected to add approximately 100,000 new residents and 70,000 new jobs and the transportation system will need to accommodate the anticipated demand. Transit ridership has significantly increased in recent years, with only minimal increase in service. Dane County has more jobs than workers and commuting from surrounding counties is anticipated to increase in the coming years. More and more people are biking for commuting and recreation. Demographics are changing, and so are preferences and needs.

Madison’s natural amenities and geographic form limit future transportation options. Further, our streets are more than just means to move people and goods. They are places, gathering space, and fundamental to the character of surrounding neighborhoods. Great neighborhoods need great streets.
