Current Opportunities for Public Comment

2022 Annual Performance Targets

The Waco MPO is accepting comments on annual performance targets proposed for the Waco Metropolitan Area regarding: 1) roadway safety, 2) public transportation safety, and 3) public transportation asset condition.

Transportation Performance Management (TPM) is federally required by Congress through the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. It is a strategic approach that uses goals, measures, and data to make better informed decisions about how to invest transportation funding and improve the performance of the national transportation system.

The Waco MPO is proposing to support 2022 roadway safety targets established by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and to support 2022 public transportation safety and asset condition targets established by Waco Transit System, Inc.

We are seeking public comment on the proposed performance targets. Information on each set of proposed targets is provided below:

The MPO will host a virtual public informational meeting on Monday, January 24, 2022 at 12:00 PM.

Reimagine Waco Transit!

Waco Transit System and the Waco Metropolitan Planning Organization are conducting ‘Reimagine Waco Transit’ to improve transit connectivity and mobility for our community. We want to have a conversation about transit in the Waco area and develop a shared understanding of how best to improve it.

How to Get Involved

Whether you take the bus, ride a bike, use a mobility device, or drive a car, we need your input to help develop transit recommendations for Waco. Understanding the needs and wants from Waco residents will help develop a shared understanding of the benefits associated with quality transit, and your input will help form the transit recommendations. Your insights will directly shape the future of transit in Waco!

We want to thank you sincerely for your participation thus far in the Reimagine Waco Transit study. We are excited by all the great feedback we received and will use your responses as a guide to create alternative scenarios for the transit system. Continue to check our website landing page, where we post updates to the project and new opportunities to engage with the study: https://reimaginewacotransit-atginc.hub.arcgis.com/Stay updated on the latest mapping for route redesign, important milestones and the project timeline. 

We appreciate your help and look forward to keeping you updated in the future! Your efforts make this project successful!
