<br />Exhibit B-1 <br />Errata to September 2001 TransPlan <br /> <br />Chapter 1 Errata <br /> <br />On Chapter 1, Page 5 - revise the "Participating Agencies and Geographic Area" section to add <br />the following paragraphs: <br /> <br />Because TransPlan serves as both the federally required Regional Transportation Plan for <br />the Eugene-Springfield area and as the Transportation Functional Plan for Metro Plan, <br />two planning horizons are referred to in the document - 2015 and 2020. Jbe 2015 <br />planning horizon is used to be consistent with the 2015 Metro Plan planning horizon. In <br />particular, forecasted regional land use allocations use Metro Plan's 2015 land uses as a <br />basis. The 2015 planning horizon is used in conjunction with the Performance Measures <br />contained in Chapter 4 that are a requirement ofLCDC's Transportation Planning Rule. <br /> <br />A 2020 planning horizon has been developed to meet federal requirements for a 20-year <br />financial constraint and air quality conformity determination. Because there is no official <br />land use allocation beyond 2015, the 2020 forecasts represent an extrapolation of2015 <br />population and employment. Revenue and Cost estimates used in TransPlan are for <br />2020. <br /> <br />On Chapter 1, Page 5 - revise the first paragraph under "TransPlan Legal Status and Adopted <br />Sections" to read: <br /> <br />Local jurisdictions will adopt TransPlan as the region's transportation plan. The <br />portions of TransPlan that will be adopted as Metro Plan policy amendments <br />include goals, policies and 20-year fiscally constrained Capital Investment Action <br />project lists (programmed and unprogrammed projects). <br /> <br />Chapter 2 Errata <br /> <br />On Chapter 2, Page 29, revise "TSI Transit Policy #2: Bus Rapid Transit" Policy Definition and <br />Intent to read: <br /> <br />, . <br /> <br />Policy DefinitionlIntent: BRT is, in essence, the use of buses to emulate the positive <br />characteristics of a rail system, but at a fraction of the cost of a rail system. The BR T system will <br />include: <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />Exclusive busways along major corridors, <br />Faster boarding through low-floor, multiple door vehicles, <br />Minimum ten minute frequency during peak hours; <br />Increased convenience and comfort" <br />Limited stops, <br />Improved travel time through reduction of impact from normal traffic congestion <br />through bus priority treatment <br />A connected system of BR T corridor and neighborhood routes <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />BRT, when combined with other system improvement, land use, and demand management <br />strategies, is expected to increase the share of riders who use public transportation. BR T is also <br />
