Transportation Strategy: develop publically available informational services and educational opportunities including a regional transportation website that links residents and visitors to transportation options and services The lack of a MPO in the North Country means that each county and when applicable each jurisdiction, is responsible for providing local transit. This is also true for providing transit information. For the traveler who is remaining in the local area, this may be adequate, but for longer trips, or the need for regional trips, no single source is available. A regional website would provide all travelers with more timely and accurate information on travel options provide information on regional options and show how existing local transit can be linked together as well as acting as a hosting location for more non-traditional options, such as formal and informal ridesharing, jitney, taxi, pedestrian and bicycling information. For travelers coming into the region the site would provide the ability to design a complete travel experience from a single location. This functionality is critical to making transit a viable option for travel. No traveler will enter the region without a comprehensive picture of their travel needs. 198
