PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT SOFTWARE
FOR TRANSPORTATION PLANNERS
PublicInput helps MPOs, transit agencies, and DOTs to facilitate conversations across their communities, regions, and states. The PublicInput Platform™ supercharges the transportation planning process by connecting planners and decision-makers with constituents in a transparent and inclusive manner. Our platform supports planners working to ensure publicly funded projects and programs are based on a “3-C” planning process (continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive) that engages stakeholders early and often.
Real Results from An Organization Like Yours
NCDOT recognizes the impact their decisions have on the day-to-day quality of life of North Carolina’s residents. With only a couple staff members dedicated to public involvement, success depends on integrating efforts in a way that saves time and effort while also ensuring project awareness and goodwill between the DOT and residents.
