Gregory Krykewycz, AICP, PP, DVRPC Manager, Office of Transit, Bicycle, and Pedestrian Planning

The DVRPC region is served by nearly every mode of public transit. Our region historically developed with transit and our multimodal public transit network remains a tremendous asset around which to anchor growth as we plan for a more sustainable future. In addition, bicycling and walking are low-impact, environmentally friendly, affordable, and sustainable modes of transportation that are accessible to a wide range of users for a variety of trip purposes, particularly when combined with public transit. DVRPC staff in the Office of Transit, Bicycle, and Pedestrian Planning is engaged in a variety of planning projects to help increase the mobility of all residents in the region. Mr. Krykewycz will present an overview of the department and initiatives for FY 2014.
