Draft Transportation Plan Ideas, Dave Edwards, February 12, 2010

Embedded below is a document prepared by Dave Edwards, long-time Reston resident and urban planner, providing his ideas on handling transportation issues as Reston evolves. He provided this document to the Reston Special Study Task Force. Here is a key excerpt:

Central among the many critical factors relating to livability is accessibility and mobility throughout Reston. If the overall transportation system serving all parts of Reston breaks down, Reston will decline rapidly. The transportation system includes all modes in proper balance – rail transit, bus and other types of public transit, bicycling and walking stand out. The private, single-passenger automobile will have an important role, but during peak hours, the Reston Core will choke if the private auto continues to dominate. All the other modes, particularly modes of public transit, must be greatly enhanced relative to accommodations for the private auto.

For the full text of Dave's ideas, see below.
