Our Vision

A vision statement describes the optimal future that all of us, working together, want to bring about. An inspiring picture of what we want to accomplish over time, the vision statement motivates and guides everyone involved in achieving it. It provides a focal point that helps each partner agency and stakeholder to align its own plans and actions with the desired future outcomes, and to stay true to the course during the long journey toward success.

What's the VTrans2040 Vision?

The VTrans2040 Vision, adopted in 2016, envisions a future in which "Virginia's transportation system will be Good for Business, Good for Communities, and Good to Go. Virginians will benefit from a transportation system that advances Virginia businesses, attracts a 21st century workforce, and promotes healthy communities where Virginians of all ages and abilities can thrive."

Why Update the Vision?

It's important to step back every so often and assess the meaning and relevance of a previously adopted vision statement, given the values, needs, and desires of today's Virginians. Regardless of whether we make any changes to the words, we need to make sure the vision - and the goals that support it - represents our very best aspiration for the world in which future generations of Virginians will live.

How Can I Be Part of Updating the Vision?

All Virginia residents and businesses are invited to be part of the entire VTrans development process, including the Vision statement. See the Get Involved section for more information about how you can share your ideas, concerns, and opinions about the future of Virginia's transportation system with OIPI and the CTB.
