Iowa Commuter Transportation Study


Traffic congestion

The Iowa Department of Transportation conducted a study to identify and evaluate alternatives for commuter transportation in one of Iowa’s major travel corridors, the Interstate 380 corridor.

Iowa DOT is interested in alternatives that enhance mobility options and expand transportation options for commuters, reduce wear and tear on the highway system, and decrease traffic congestion along primary corridors. To accomplish this, the Iowa Commuter Transportation Study identified the existing and future commuter needs in the corridor and determined the viability of various commuter transportation alternatives to address those needs.

Study Purpose

  • Eastern Iowa communities depend on one another economically, and improving the transportation system is critical to supporting future growth and access to jobs in the region.
  • The DOT is interested in more transportation options along major transportation corridors to reduce wear and tear on the transportation system, decrease traffic congestion.
