'Sustainable DC' Plan Moving Forward
Comments are open on the plan until September 30, and Alpert certainly has some feedback already. His evaluation of the plan is separated into sections on "what's great" and "what should be stronger." Headlining the former are goals to increase use of public transit, increase walking and biking, and decrease car trips. For the latter, Alpert focuses on the details that will be necessary to achieve some of the goals laid out by the plan. "For instance, on bus service, the action is to 'Complete a high capacity transit study on high capacity corridors.' The draft plan neither defines what high-capacity transit is nor insists we then implement any of these corridors."
