Help us learn about your transportation priorities as we plan for the future!

We are gathering input about transportation-related improvements for Kent and eastern Ottawa Counties from local residents. The data will be used in the Grand Valley Metropolitan Council’s 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) to help guide our work. The MTP is updated every four years and represents the 25-year vision for the transportation system in Kent and eastern Ottawa Counties. The plan includes road networks, public transit, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, rail, and air travel. Please contribute your perspective so that we can make sure our transportation system serves the needs of the community.  

This survey is voluntary and should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

If you need assistance, please call us at (616) 776-7603 or email Andrea Faber, Transportation Planner, at andrea.faber@gvmc.org
