Transportation Policy & Planning Board (TPPB)

Description: Madison General Ordinance (MGO) 33.55

The purpose of the Transportation Policy & Planning Board is to consider and address transportation policy and planning issues pertaining to each element of the city's transportation system including bicycles, bus, freight and automobile traffic, parking, pedestrians, street, and other transportation elements as may be identified by the Common Council by ordinance or resolution. (ORD-17-0099, file 46249 (effective  1-1-2018)}.

WHAT MAKES A TRANSIT NETWORK USEFUL

  • Access and Freedom
    • How Transit Expands Access. The basic point of transit is to increase the number of useful places people can access in a reasonable amount of time without driving beyond the area they can reach on their own. On transit, the extent of your access is determined by the network, the layout of the city, your location.
  • What is access in a city full of possibilities?
    • Where can you get to in 45 minutes?
    • The access to destinations is the number of destinations in that area: count the jobs, or schools or shopping in that area to estimate access.
  • What is access?
    • Access is the ability to get from your current location to places you need to go. The more places you can access, the more freedom you have to live your life in the way you need.
    • Transit helps increase this freedom by providing access to more places without needing to drive.

Joint Transportation Commission (TC) & Transportation Policy & Planning Board (TPPB)

(Joint TC and TPPB meeting with presentation by Jarrett Walker & Associates & Urban Assets, September 30, 2020)

The Transportation Commission

Description: Madison General Ordinance (MGO) 33.56

The Transportation Commission shall decide the transportation issues below in a manner that is consistent with the transportation policies and plans adopted by the Common Council.

The City is transforming its metro transit within an existing budget. Trade-offs: Bus service that goes everywhere (Coverage) vs service that best serves the majority (Ridership). Tradeoffs: Higher Frequency, Direct Travel, Fewer Transfers. The Consequences of these choices: less coverage – some areas would be a longer walk from service.

Defining Key Issues

The Draft Network is the result of a year of study and outreach. In early 2021, the Choice Report outlined issues with existing service.

Policy Direction

October 2021, the Madison TPPB directed the project team to develop a Draft Network that retains most of the benefits of the Ridership Alternative. (Alternatives Report)

Key Take-Aways

  • Bus routes will be designed to be longer, straighter and more frequent.
  • Transfer points will be eliminated, eliminating unnecessary delays and indirection.
  • The system overall will be far simpler, more logical and easier to use.

NEXT STEPS:

AMENDMENT PROCESS

  • Metro will lay out  plausible amendments to the draft plan.
  • TPPB & METRO WILL HOLD A FINAL PUBLIC HEARING
  • TPPB WILL MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ON WHICH ONES TO INCLUDE
  • DRAFT PLAN WITH AMENDMENTS ADOPTED BY TPPB, RECOMMENDATION TO COMMON COUNCIL
  • DRAFT PLAN WITH ADMENDMENTS ADOPTED BY COMMON COUNCIL
  • TITLE VI. SERVICE EQUITY ANALYSIS AND ADJUSTMENTS IDENTIFIED, IF ANY
  • SCHEDULES AND BUS STOP CHANGES APPROVED BY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION
  • SERVICE CHANGE JUNE 2023.
