Heartland Connections – Regional Transit Vision identifies a future vision for public transit in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area. Heartland Connections is being conducted as part of the Heartland 2050 process and in parallel with ongoing assessments of multi-modal corridor development opportunities.
The Regional Transit Vision feasibility study process had defined long-term transit investment scenarios and options through a technical process that included stakeholder outreach, travel market analysis, transit service planning, financial analysis and institutional considerations. The scenarios have been developed to support broader regional growth plans that are a part of Heartland 2050.
Heartland 2050 and the more focused Heartland Connections initiative will position Omaha for managed growth and future success through a consensus-based strategy for thoughtful and reasoned investment in the transportation network and other public infrastructure. Together, these initiatives will advance Complete Streets as well as other pedestrian and bicycle-oriented strategies in selected regional corridors.
