Hey, transportation planning friends and aficionados! I need your help (use this twitter thread) setting good goals for our city's mobility future.

We want getting around Austin to be more reliable, affordable, quick, safe, and just. How do we measure that?
The Council is going to vote (in March) on the Austin's Strategic Mobility Plan. One of the goals is a 50/50 mode split between single occupancy car trips to work and other options (walking, biking, transit, telecommunte). What do you think?
We'll include other goals that are measurable. Vehicle miles traveled per person per day (fewer is better), housing units and jobs per acre near transit (more means more transit riders), goals for amount of parking in areas w/ jobs and transit (more parking means less transit)
Do you think the goals above make sense? Would you add some? What are some targets we should set for these? Yes, I do want your thoughts on what our VMT should be in Austin in 10 years, or 20 years.
Also, on February 14th, Council is going to discuss new metrics to measure how our transportation system is doing. Those metrics are in the image below. I know, they're out of order, but it's Friday.

Help us out with your thoughts on these, too, please!
Oops I totally left off the safety metrics for the same Friday reasons. Never fear @DanKeshet @Mateo_in_ATX @NicWillMoe
h/t to @juliogatx for bringing some of these metrics up in the past!
