Multi-modal transportation priorities were developed for the Sustain Southern Maine region through creation of a series of related plans and reports. The overarching report being the regional Multi-Modal Transportation Plan in which all the recommended priorities are brought together. The existing long-range transportation plans of the 2 Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) within the region, Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System (PACTS) and Kittery Area Comprehensive Transportation System (KACTS), served as the basis for the multi-modal plan. The series of related plans and documents (available below) served to augment and update the information contained within the existing long range plans. Additionally, 2 Knowledge Sharing sessions, Regional Transit for Southern Maine and Trails and A Livable Southern Maine were held to present on examples of local best practice as well as discuss related challenges faced by the region.
