Public asked for input on state’s transportation needs, funding

Posted:

ATLANTA – As state and national leaders consider alternatives for funding future transportation needs, the Georgia Department of Transportation wants to know what Georgians would like in their 21st century transportation system and how they recommend paying for it.

On the department’s website – www.dot.ga.gov – the public is asked to spend a few minutes completing a brief survey on their current transportation habits and expenses and what they want Georgia DOT to do to meet their current and future transportation needs.

“I want to be able to provide this input – direct from our constituents and those who use our transportation system – to our leaders in Congress and the General Assembly,” said GDOT Commissioner Keith Golden. “They are faced with difficult transportation decisions that will affect our economy and our quality of life for decades to come.

“I want to be able to share with them the actual experiences and the good ideas of the people who best know Georgia’s transportation system – those people who use it every day,” he said. “I encourage everyone to take a few moments to complete the survey and share their thoughts with us.”

The survey is available until Sept. 30 at http://www.dot.ga.gov/aboutGeorgiadot/Pages/Survey.aspx.
