During Thursday’s regular meeting, Frisco City Council approved a Transportation Strategic Plan that highlights five focus areas: construction, intersections, connectivity, partnerships and innovation.
Each focus area includes some strategies the city is already implementing, but a few strategies include the use of new technological solutions and the possibility of building future partnerships with area entities, such as Dallas Area Rapid Transit.
Some of the technological solutions pointed out in the plan include data sharing between vehicles, traffic signals and apps as well as Vertical Takeoff and Landing aircraft, which should be launching by 2023 in Frisco. It also pinpoints self-driving vehicle services at Hall Park.
DART is mentioned as a local entity that the city could partner with for future transportation solutions, as well as entities that the city already partners with, including the Transportation Management Association and Denton County Transportation Authority.
