3. FY 2020 Work Program Amendment: Commuter Assistance After  COVID

During the COVID-19 pandemic, most employees and the rest of the public have been directed to stay at home (SAH). This, predictably, has resulted in a huge reduction in automobile travel and caused service reductions and cuts on public transit. TDM efforts virtually came to a halt. Staff will present on the tasks of this proposed work program designed to assist businesses and commuters with navigating their options for travel as SAH restrictions ease.

4.   FY 2021 TCDI Grant Program

DVRPC solicited applications for the FY 2021 TCDI grant program in January 2020.  Staff will present the application review process and recommended projects for funding.  

5.   Economic Development District (EDD) Designation Application Update

In  May 2018, DVRPC staff prepared a formal application to US EDA to become the federally-designated Economic Development District for the 9-county, bi- state DVRPC region.  Staff is seeking Board support to submit updated documents.

PRESENTATION ITEMS

7.   Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on travel in the DVRPC region using real-time location data

Connected Vehicles and GPS-enabled mobile devices and associated applications provide for real-time location data that can be used to provide insights into mobility trends throughout a region.  This anonymized and aggregated location-based archived big data has been made available through various organizations, and DVRPC has analyzed it to help better understand the results of the COVID-19 pandemic on traffic patterns throughout the DVRPC region. Daily vehicle miles traveled, mobility, and social distancing data are analyzed by County over the last several months.
