What are the Integrated Transit Studies?

The DMC plan was not a blueprint but a concept for future development. The DMC plan was based on a high level assessment of conceptual needs and feasibility. The Integrated Transit Studies are refining the concepts identified in the plan. Specifically, the integrated transit studies will:

  • Explore how the DMC concepts can be built within public right of way with minimal impact to adjacent private property
  • Determine the most cost-effective use of public dollars to realize the DMC’s transportation vision
  • Allow additional opportunity for public agencies, property owners, businesses and residents to participate in the development of alternatives to implement the DMC plan concepts
  • Lay the ground work to seek federal funding for some of these projects

U.M.R. is located at 111 South Broadway, Rochester.
