The Metropolitan Planning Organization of Johnson County (MPOJC) wants to know how and why Johnson County residents travel.

MPOJC has posted six transportation surveys -- general transportation, passenger vehicle, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and youth -- on its website at Participants are encouraged to fill out all surveys with the exception of the youth survey, which is intended to be completed only by area residents aged 18 and under. The surveys will remain open until Friday, March 25, 2016. All responses are anonymous.

Survey responses will help guide the development of the Future Forward 2045 Transportation Plan, a requirement for securing state and federal funding for transportation projects. The plan helps guide the metropolitan area decision-making regarding transportation improvements and investments extending 25 years into the future.

For more information about MPOJC or to access the current Long-Range Transportation Plan, visit Follow MPOJC on Twitter @MPOJC for other public input opportunities.
