The COMPASS TIP and Communities in Motion plan are specific to Ada and Canyon Counties. In July, the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) solicited feedback on the stateside equivalent of COMPASS’ regional TIP. Since there is some overlap between the statewide and regional TIPs, some projects in Ada and Canyon Counties appear in both.

The COMPASS materials open for public comment now include additional local projects and include the air quality conformity demonstration specific to northern Ada County. We encourage you to review and comment on the COMPASS documents, even if you previously commented on ITD’s, as there are differences. However, where there is overlap, we work with ITD to ensure comments provided are shared with the Boards of Directors of both agencies, regardless of whether they were submitted through the COMPASS or ITD public comment process. 

Comments must be submitted in writing and received no later than 11:59 pm, Tuesday, August 31, 2021.

Those needing assistance, including assistance in submitting written comments, may call 208/855-2558 with 48 hours advance notice. Personas que necesitan asistencia, favor de llamar al número 208/855-2558 con 48 horas de anticipación.

This survey is now closed. Link to survey results.

If there were high-capacity transit, such as light rail, commuter rail, or bus rapid transit, from Caldwell to Nampa, Meridian, and Boise, would you use it? What would factor into that decision? Where would you want it to take you?

Take a short survey to share your needs and preferences for high-capacity transit service to help COMPASS plan for the future.
