Philadelphia has released its first strategic transportation plan, which has been named Connect, to set goals for "revamping bus service, expanding bike-share, addressing traffic congestion, creating neighborhood slow zones, ensuring a walkable city and managing parking and curbside space," according to an article by Katie Pyzyk.

The new strategic plan builds on previous work done by the city's Vision Zero policy and its Philadelphia2035 comprehensive plan.

"Connect states that transportation infrastructure and service improvements are needed because a transportation system greatly affects residents' quality of life and access to jobs and other opportunities, and a poorly operating system leads to resident isolation and decreased economic growth in addition to pollution and various health issues," adds Pyzyk.
