Summary: This video was a 2012 John and Jane Public Competition winner. From TRB Committee ADA 60: Every four years, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission updates its Regional Transportation Plan. Public participation is critical to ensure an open, democratic process, in which all stakeholders have opportunity to offer input and share their vision for what a vibrant, livable Bay Area will look like decades from now. But how do transportation professionals help the public make sense of it all? MTC’s answer in 2011 was to produce a clever and informative animated video focused on the transportation investment decisions – some $256 billion worth – at the core of the Plan Bay Area effort. The Transportation Priorities: How Would YOU Invest? video served to demystify the complexities of transportation planning and finance, and show interested Bay Area residents some of the trade-offs that will have to be made by MTC decision makers, all in five minutes.
