Tell us how we should invest in transportation

We are developing a plan to guide how transportation funds will be spent in our area over the next 25 years.  We want to know your thoughts on the transportation system and what you think should be our priorities.  The survey is being conducted by the Lexington Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the transportation planning agency for Fayette and Jessamine Counties.  
This survey is short and should take about 5 minutes to complete.

* 1. Where do you live?

* 2. How do you usually travel for your commute or other daily trips?

* 3. Are there other ways you sometimes travel (choose one or more)?

* 4. Are you interested in any of the following either today or in the future?

* 5. What is the biggest transportation challenge facing the Lexington Area?

* 6. Knowing that funding is limited, please rank the following from most (1) to least (7) important. Click and drag in order of priority or use the dropdown box.

* 7. When ranking the priority of projects and initiatives, how important are these measures?

  Less Important Neutral  More Important
Compact development that is more walkable (higher density mix of housing and retail, less parking, wider/more sidewalks)

Emphasis on technologies and on-call transportation services (connected and self-driving cars/buses/delivery vehicles)
A combination of these options
