According to DVRPC employment forecasts, over 200,000 employees work along the 422 Corridor within Montgomery and Chester Counties. With this increasing population, we need to take a strategic approach on how the region is managing our transportation network. American drivers lose an average of 42 hours a year stuck in traffic. The 422 Corridor continues to be one of the most congested roadways in Montgomery County with over 100,000 vehicles traveling it per day. Therefore, GVF has formed a 422 Transit Task Force, which will focus on public transit options along the 422 corridor.
