ESTABLISH A NORTH-SOUTH PARKWAY The LNTC and the towns should plan for a parallel north-south parkway that will expand the commuter rail impact area to the east, roughly along Prosperity Church Road from I-485 north. Ridership will continue to be a major consideration in justifying funding for any major capital investment in transit. Increased connectivity and capacity enhancements west of I-77 and east of the rail line, all feeding the rail investment, should enhance the ridership base. Even with expanded ridership, however, automobile access will still be a very important factor in the success of a TOD.
