Charleston-area urban planners are updating the regional long-term transportation outlook and they want to hear from you this week.

The Charleston Area Transit Study (CHATS) is a 25-year plan crafted by the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments that sets out priorities for spending federal money on local transportation projects. Every five years, it gets an update to keep it within federal regulations and incorporate some new thinking since the last update. The priorities laid out in the plan cover everything from fixing existing deficiencies to bike-ped policy to freight mobility issues.

Currently, Charleston is considering a regional transit and mobility plan, has recently implemented a downtown bikeshare system, and private efforts are underway to build a pedestrian path down the center of the peninsula.

The BCD-COG is holding three meetings this week, starting tonight. More info is available at chats2040.com.
