Abstract: Connections 2045 Plan for Greater Philadelphia is the Long-Range Plan for the Greater Philadelphia region. It assesses regional trends and forecasts and sets a shared vision for the future. The Plan is organized around five core principles to achieve the vision: Sustain the Environment; Develop Livable Communities; Expand the Economy; Advance Equity and Foster Diversity; and Create an Integrated, Multimodal Transportation Network. It contains a fiscally constrained financial plan that compares available revenues with the region's vision for investing in transportation infrastructure, allocates revenue to projects based on policy and need, and considers different funding options that could help to more fully realize the vision. Last, the Plan presents actions we can all take to achieve the vision. This Summary Version is a companion piece to the Connections 2045 Administrative Version (DVRPC Publication #17039).
