Integrated Transportation Plan

ITP Project Background
Development of an ITP is an important directive of Chapter 7 (Multimodal Transportation) of the Jackson/Teton Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan also emphasizes that the community plans to meet future transportation demand through the use of alternative modes. The “integrated” component of the plan references integration between multiple modes of travel instead of evaluating each mode in its own sphere, it also references integration between jurisdictions (Town, County, State, Federal) as well as the integration of land use and transportation
The ITP uses a metrics-based approach to provide a detailed strategy, including an implementation plan, for the Town and County to achieve the transportation objectives set forth in the Comprehensive Plan. This plan has been developed jointly by the Town of Jackson and Teton County and guided by the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC). The planning process was initiated in early 2014 and was adopted in September, 2015.
Please see the "Updates" tab for changes or achievements since the 2015 adoption of the Plan.

2019 - 2020 Integrated Transportation Plan - Technical Update
Transportation trends and future transportation goals in the community are best understood through the context of the joint Town of Jackson and Teton County Comprehensive Plan and Growth Management Program (GMP). For a summary of the process and findings of our most recent update of these plans, please visit the GMP project page and review the summary report.
Why so many plans? The presentation below provides a brief overview of how the Comprehensive Plan, Growth Management Program, and ITP work together to inform transportation needs and help us reach future transportation goals in the region.
The November 4, 2019 Joint Information Meeting (JIM) provided opportunity to present on the status of the ITP Technical Update process. This presentation, linked below, provides a summary of the current ITP, major trends since 2013/2015, summarizes a few conclusions observed so far, and leaves us with a few questions to ponder as we move forward.
In December 2020, the Integrated Transportation Technical Update was adopted by the Board of County Commissioners and the Town Council. For more information visit the ITP Technical Update project page.
