Make the most efficient use of existing transportation 83 facilities to relieve vehicular congestion, improve safety, and 84 maximize the mobility of people and goods. Such efforts must 85 include, but are not limited to, consideration of infrastructure 86 and technological improvements necessary to accommodate advances 87 in vehicle technology, such as the increased use of autonomous 88 technology and electric vehicles, and other developments. 89 90 In the development of its long-range transportation plan, each 91 M.P.O. must provide the public, affected public agencies, 92 representatives of transportation agency employees, freight 93 shippers, providers of freight transportation services, private 94 providers of transportation, representatives of users of public 95 transit, and other interested parties with a reasonable 96 opportunity to comment on the long-range transportation plan. 97 The long-range transportation plan must be approved by the 98 M.P.O. 99 Section 3.
