Regional Transportation Plan

The Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission takes a regional/balanced view of transportation issues. This emphasis on regional issues should not be taken to downplay the importance of local transportation issues on the Region’s transportation system.  The Region’s major highway system, rail freight facilities, transit system, etc. will not function efficiently without feeder systems which likewise need to operate efficiently.  To emphasize the scope and scale of the regional transportation issues facing Central Vermont and its communities, CVRPC established a vision and mission statement to guide the development of transportation goals, policies, and action items.


“To maintain and develop a transportation system that facilitates travel while preserving the Region’s character.”


“Preserve, enhance, and develop an integrated, multimodal regional transportation system to accommodate the need for movement of people and commerce in a safe, cost-effective, environmentally responsible, and equitable manner, that conforms with other elements of the regional plan.”
