ACTIVE & MULTIMODAL TRANSPORTATION INITIATIVES
Citizens throughout the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area are making increased use of active modes of transportation (cycling, walking, mass transit) to meet their everyday mobility needs. MAPA stands ready to assist its jurisdictions with responding to this emerging demand in both the planning and delivery of active and multimodal transportation projects. This page will document ongoing and upcoming initiatives in the region.
