MDOT MTA developed and manages the Transit Roots: Sustainability Program to continuously enhance its world-class transit service and help balance the needs of a community’s quality of life, environmental health, and a robust economy. The Sustainability Program’s purpose is to support and implement the MDOT Policy Manual Supporting Document 606.4, which identifies a vision and goals for a sustainable multimodal transportation system.
