According to the agency, both goals are both important, but they lead in opposite directions. So UTA is asking the members of the community to take a survey to help prioritize issues such as reducing traffic congestion; improving air quality; stimulating development in urban centers; providing an affordable transportation alternative to driving; getting people to jobs and school; providing service to everyone who pays for transit; and connecting people to social services.
