Each day you are affected by some facet of transportation and the decisions made by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT).  Have you ever wondered how you can influence those transportation decisions?

VDOT has published Public Involvement: Your Guide to Participating in the Transportation Planning and Programming Processes to explain the planning and programming processes, which are the beginning stages of all transportation projects.

This brochure also explains the various activities in which citizens can participate and influence plans years before project level work begins.
