Provide an effective, safe, multimodal, and financially sustainable transportation system for the region that equitably meets needs, enhances connections to opportunities, controls user costs, reduces impacts to the environment, and maximizes transportation options.
Improve Alternatives to Driving
Coordination with Land Uses
OKI supports local comprehensive planning efforts with technical support and guidance materials as needed. Coordinating with OKI provides consistency between local comprehensive plans and the Strategic Regional Policy Plan (SRPP) and Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).
Advance the Use of Technology
In an effort to advance the use of technology that improves the system, OKI awards points in its prioritization process for transportation projects requesting OKI funding that include technology that improves system longevity, traffic performance, and/or overall efficiencies.
Improve the Sustainability of the Transportation System
As stated in the OKI 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan, we are living in one of the most transformative times for transportation. Technology is driving us toward a new mobility landscape. A healthy transportation system has long been a driving force behind our region’s quality of life and economic prosperity.
Improve Transportation Safety for all Users
In 2020, OKI updated the region’s Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan. This plan takes inventory of the region’s transit services for elderly, people with disabilities, and low-income populations. The plan identifies gaps in service and establishes strategies that guide funding decisions for improvements.
