Traffic Light Scorecard"Residents have safe and affordable integrated transportation options that meet the public's needs"
PICTURE IS IMPROVING
Based on the Following criteria:
Albuquerque is becoming more of a multi-modal city. Its alternative transportation options are improving. They are integrated and growing in use. Average travel time to work has remained stable at a relatively low rate. Transit ridership has increased 37% from 2003 through 2007. Albuquerque’s bicycling infrastructure is strong and growing, having experienced an increase of 34 miles of lanes, routes, and trails. Most of that growth is in trails, separate from road infrastructure, shared with cars and trucks.
While Albuquerque does not have as sophisticated a multi-modal transit system as some of our peer cities, our transit system is growing strongly with an increase of over 37% in ridership in the period 2003 through 2007. Albuquerque’s average commute time is shorter than three peer cities and much lower than the average for the nation. Albuquerque’s highly ranked bicycle infrastructure is very competitive and continues to be enhanced.
While citizens think this condition is important, the condition mean was low relative to other conditions. They perceive some progress being made. While Albuquerque residents clearly value their cars over other modes, there are signs this condition is improving. Alternative transportation modes represent the most cost effective means of handling future transportation growth.
