Campus Engagement A Success

Thank you to all who participated in the recent campus workshop and engagement sessions the week of September 27 in support of the Transportation Mobility Master Plan. Walker Consultants and the Texas A&M Transportation Services team hosted a project mobility booth at Rudder Plaza across several days, facilitated stakeholder meetings, and held an in-person campus on September 29 at the Memorial Student Center.

The booth consisted of interactive activities where students were invited to share their likes and dislikes about transportation and parking on campus and the workshop consisted of a “drop-in” style open house forum. Over 150 members of the Texas A&M community participate in the week’s in-person activities.

The workshop itself consisted of four stations where attendees were invited to learn more about the Transportation Mobility Master Plan project, provide input on personal mobility experiences, envision the future of transportation and mobility on the Texas A&M campus, and providing ideas on how to promote campus safety and accessibility.

Major themes that emerged from the engagement include:

  • Allowing for choice- no “one size fits all”. Our solutions should not push a single mode. We must allow our community to make the choices that work best for them.
  • Realistic, responsive goals. Create solutions that respond to the realities of our growing and changing campus.
  • Implementation. Ensure that scenarios reflect an understanding of implementation considerations, such as timeline and cost.
  • Remove parking from core campus and consider creative circulation options.
  • Seek comfort for all, on all modes- delineation, urban design and shade, expanded accessibility, and more.
  • Create better options for connectivity to surrounding communities.
  • Don’t lose sight of quick fixes—like more stops and better headways on transit routes, signal timing, and more.

We welcome your continued participation in the Transportation Mobility Plan project! Please continue to look for opportunities to learn and provide feedback on this website and through other forums.
