Study Measures Attitudes About Quality of Life and Transportation
Posted on: July 14, 2014 in Transportation News
A new study looks at Central Floridians’ values, priorities and views on the future of the region. The project measures attitudes on a range of topics, focusing heavily on the regional transportation system.
The research — called Understanding the Values and Priorities of Central Floridians — was produced by Heart+Mind Strategies. It found that transportation is a pivotal issue for the area residents surveyed, with most agreeing that traffic congestion is a significant problem for the region and many supporting increased spending on mass transit.
The study was spearheaded by the Central Florida Partnership and was funded by contributions from the business community, the non-profit sector and transportation interests.
MetroPlan Orlando participated, along with seven other transportation organizations, in helping to fund the study. Other transportation groups participating were: Florida Department of Transportation, LYNX, Central Florida Expressway Authority (formerly Orlando-Orange County), Space Coast TPO, River to Sea TPO (formerly Volusia), Lake-Sumter TPO, and Polk TPO.
The report debuted at an event hosted by the Central Florida Partnership in June.
