The Binghamton Metropolitan Transportation Study is committed to the principle that successful outcomes happen when we plan WITH the community, not when we plan FOR the community. Investment of public funds in the transportation system affects your quality of life. The quality of transportation services and facilities affects your mobility, the safety of your travel, the cost of goods you buy, the social and economic health of the region. Transportation decisions often have a lasting influence on the shape of the community. The decision to construct NY Route 17 through the north side of Binghamton and Johnson City (a decision that long pre-dates BMTS, by the way) continues to have impacts, both positive and negative, forty years later. We simply cannot undo a new road or bridge. It is therefore incumbent on us to make sure those decisions are well thought out.
