Thank you for your participation in the MTP 2050, Coordinated Public Transit - Human Services Transportation Plan, and Electric Vehicle Plan. Results are being analyzed and reports will be made available soon.
WAMPO’s Electric Vehicle Plan is being developed to support the growing market of electric vehicles (EV) in the region by enabling municipalities and others to address immediate needs and long-term planning objectives so the WAMPO region will become an electric vehicle (EV) destination, corridor, and gateway.
The Electric Vehicle Plan will outline the first steps the region can take to support and encourage electric vehicle adoption. It will deliver a comprehensive course of action to provide EV charging infrastructure and remove barriers to further EV adoption in the WAMPO region efficiently and effectively. This plan will serve as a starting point for private and public entities to grow familiarity with the opportunities and challenges with EV vehicles, charging infrastructure, and adoption.
The Electric Vehicle Plan will support the Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2050 and the Charge Up Kansas NEVI Plan, by advancing the use of EVs to improve air quality and fostering economic development. WAMPO has an opportunity to adapt to emerging technologies by closing EV charging infrastructure gaps and removing barriers to EV adoption.
