If you walk, bike, drive or use public transportation, we want to hear from you! We are launching the ConnectCOS transportation study for a more mobile community.
Colorado Springs is launching a citywide visionary transportation study, ConnectCOS to help us create a transportation plan that reflects the evolving needs of our community
The city has changed a lot since the last update to our major transportation plan (the Intermodal Transportation Plan) almost 20 years ago. Now is the time to review our current transportation system and develop a plan to ensure an efficient, accessible, safe, and well-connected network for people who drive, walk, bike and take public transit.
We need your input to understand how people are moving in and around the city. Please visit the project website today to learn more about the study and to provide feedback. There are two easy ways to submit comments:
The digital survey is a series of questions to gain insight into existing travel habits and preferences
Our online map tool allows users to pinpoint specific areas that are easy or challenging to drive, walk, bike or take transit
You can find them both at ColoradoSprings.gov/ConnectCOS. Please complete the survey and leave comments on the web-based study map by September 11th to ensure your voice is heard
The City will integrate public comments from this and future surveys into the evaluation of our transportation system and future needs and anticipates multiple opportunities to provide comments as information is developed. Later this year, the City will host a public forum for commenting on the State of the System and potential future investments and strategies prior to the team developing recommendations and the draft ConnectCOS Transportation Plan by late 2021.
For more information visit ColoradoSprings.gov/ConnectCOS.
About the plan
PlanCOS, the City’s comprehensive plan that was adopted by City Council in 2019, outlined big ideas to shape the future of our city. ConnectCOS will lay out the next 20 years of transportation planning, infrastructure, and improvements in Colorado Springs, bringing to life the goals, ideas and community values established in PlanCOS.
ConnectCOS is a year-long study that will involve a significant technical analysis, and robust community engagement effort, to identify and prioritize short and long-term transportation projects to ensure that people who live, work and play in Colorado Springs have an opportunity to participate in the study.
The City of Colorado Springs is updating its intermodal transportation plan, ConnectCOS, to identify transportation strategies and recommend implementable improvement projects to help meet the evolving transportation needs of our community.
