The Transportation Choices Compendium provides guidance to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and other statewide, regional, and local partners for working toward the Florida Transportation Plan (FTP) goal of more transportation choices for people and freight. Its purpose is to identify and share recent innovative strategies that peer agencies in the United States are testing and implementing and was developed to be a resource for regional agencies, such as metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), regional planning councils (RPCs), transit agencies, and local governments to develop and enhance strategies related to transportation choices for people and freight.
