KATS is in the early development stage of the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and the Transportation Survey is a crucial part. Please take a few short minutes to take the survey.  Once you take the survey, pass along the link for others to give their input!  The more participants, the more informed decisions KATS staff can make later in the process of the 2050 MTP.   2050 Transportation Survey
