One goal of Sarasota County is to develop and maintain a safe, convenient and efficient transportation system, which provides for an affordable balance of alternative transportation modes and safe, efficient intermodal transportation linkages; and respects the integrity of environmentally sensitive areas and wildlife habitat.
To accomplish this goal, the county must take a multimodal approach when planning the transportation systems serving the county. Planning for this is discussed in the Transit Development Plan
, the Sarasota Master Trail Plan
, and in the recently adopted Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.
