Foursquare ITP developed the Transit Element for the Hagerstown/Eastern Panhandle Metropolitan Planning Area’s Long Range Transportation Plan, providing updates to the plan for the third time. More so than the previous LRTP updates, this effort required a more thorough review of existing challenges and needs across the region, as the two transit agencies that operate within the MPO’s service area continued to deal with the operating realities and fallout from the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

The team assessed available resources and helped to prioritize transportation recommendations that would be most impactful for the residents and employees who live and work within the area. The solutions developed through this project include short- and long-term recommendations to improve service and connections across the region. These recommendations will help guide HEPMPO in determining how to move forward with progressive and transformative transit changes.
