The Binghamton Metropolitan Transportation Study is looking for input

Local News

The Binghamton Metropolitan Transportation Study is already looking ahead to the year 2045. 

BMTS is asking for input from the community as they try to identify how transportation investments in the coming years will shape the Broome-Tioga Region.

Resouce Systems Group Director Steven Gayle says one of the things they do is try to predict future trends by studying the past.

He says he believes in 2045, electric cars will be very common, automated vehicles will be on the roads, a high speed rail system will be in development and along with ride sharing services such as Uber there will be bike and scooter sharing. 

“You really need to make strategic decisions to really be thinking about this whole evolving world of transportation. We’re more interested in how it can support the vision of the future in the community.”

BMTS will be at a number of public events to hear people’s thoughts on questions such as What do you want this region to be in 25 years? and How can transportation help achieve that vision?

On Saturday, representatives will be at the Owego Strawberry Festival and next Wednesday they will be at the Broome Senior Picnic at SUNY Brome from 10:30 to 1:30.
