Multimodal Planning


Multimodal Planning works toward the optimum use of the State?s transportation modes for both passengers and freight mobility and reliability.

Multimodal transportation refers to the use of two or more modes to move passengers or freight. Intermodal transportation refers to the intersection of two or more different modes of transportation (e.g., rail and truck) or, in the case of passenger movements, a system link (e.g., ground transportation at airports). Current planning activities focus on providing improved intermodal connections, enhancing shipping choices, and conducting intermodal studies to aid local and regional economic development efforts.
