Abstract: The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act of 2015 included a new planning factor for metropolitan planning organizations to enhance multimodal access to tourism destinations. To comply with this new planning factor, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission incorporated travel and tourism tasks into the Fiscal Years 2017 and 2018 work programs. The purpose of this effort was to understand the economic impact of tourism and trends, identify regional and county tourist attractions and stakeholders, understand issues that create barriers to travel and tourism, and identify existing gaps in multimodal accessibility to tourism sites.

Key Words: Tourism, Transportation, Heritage, Community, Travel, Commuter, Airport, Transit, Sidewalks, Attractions, Historic, Economic, Employment, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Wineries, National Parks, Museums, and Revitalization.
