For a little background, the Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study (GPATS) is updating the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), and it is called Horizon2040. We started this process with a kick-off at the TD Convention Center in September, eight sub-regional meetings across our jurisdiction in October, an online MetroQuest survey, and a statistically valid survey. Thank you to everyone who participated! The information we gathered will play an instrumental role in the Long Range Transportation Plan update. Keep checking in to see more about the update in the weeks to come. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Brennan Hansley, Transportation Planner, at (864) 467-7270 or email her at email@example.com.
