Since 2009, MassDOT has undertaken a wide-reaching reform effort, designed to improve how we do business, how we respond to our customers, and how we provide the transportation services that are a crucial foundation for the sustainable prosperity of the Commonwealth.
The weMove Massachusetts process is our first comprehensive effort to prioritize our transportation investments in a way that reflects what we hear from you about what you feel is important for your transportation system. We invite you to join us as we implement weMove Massachusetts, and work to improve our business practices, make more informed decisions, and serve you better.
Between now and 2013, weMove Massachusetts will articulate MassDOT goals, priorities and policies, including improving mobility, protecting the environment, promoting economic growth, and improving public health and quality of life.
Communication with stakeholders will be a priority. Please visit the weMove Massachusetts web site to share ideas and needs.
As we develop more ideas and plans for implementing our common goals, MassDOT will announce and conduct a series of public briefings later in 2012.
