Central Fla. Visitor Study
Florida is a world-class tourist destination with extensive tourism infrastructure developed around its natural and man-made attractions. The key to providing the most efficient transportation infrastructure lies in understanding visitor travel patterns and needs. This understanding is relevant to a variety of policy considerations and has implications on facility planning, design, and operations. Tourism levels may influence policies on funding transportation infrastructure and aligning service investments in an innovative, efficient, and timely manner.
The purpose of the Central Florida Visitor Study Update (Study) has been to fully understand visitor travel within the region and recommend ways to best prepare for expected growth. The Study will provide insights into the economic and transportation opportunities for Central Florida. The final study documents are available in the Document Library and data layers are available to view on TransPort.
Nat'l Advisory Committee on Travel and Tourism Infrastructure
Signed into law on December 4, 2015, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act provides long-term surface transportation funding. One of the new provisions in the FAST Act is the creation of the National Advisory Committee on Travel and Tourism Infrastructure (NACTTI). The cross-sector, 25-member committee was appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation. The Committee’s objective is to provide information, advice, and recommendations on matters relating to the role of intermodal transportation in facilitating mobility with respect to travel and tourism activities.
