COTA Wants Your Feedback on the Future of Public Transportation in Central Ohio
NextGen Online Survey Open through October 30
COLUMBUS, OH—The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) is seeking input on its NextGen project
through an online survey about the future of public transportation in central Ohio.
Over the last 25 years, the central Ohio region has grown by more than half a million people and 300,000
jobs. With that same level of growth projected over the next 35 years, streets will be busier than ever. COTA
recently asked the community to share their vision for how transit can shape that future. Now the next
question: Where do you want to go first?
Let COTA know by responding the survey at COTA.com/NextGen through Oct. 30.
COTA’s NextGen project is a long-range visioning effort to identify public transportation needs and
opportunities for the next 10, 15, 25 years and beyond. The project will analyze how the region’s growth
trends will influence opportunities and demand for public transportation. NextGen will also identify – with
extensive community guidance – transit investments and creative ways to pay for them. COTA is coordinating
closely with the City of Columbus on the Connect ColumbUS Multimodal Plan and with MORPC on the
Metropolitan Transportation Plan. The outcome of all three planning efforts will drive future transportation
funding priorities for years to come.
