York, PA, November 26 – As the season of wish lists, gift giving, and resolutions begins, transportation planners in York County want to hear from you. Do you know a location that could use a better walking connection? Perhaps you drive a corridor that gets very congested during your drive to work. Maybe you have an idea about enhancing the bus system or a plan to help people get better access to fresh foods.
