Welcome to Stride Forward

MetroPlan brought the residents of Northern Arizona together to build our region's long-term transportation plan, Stride Forward. This plan directs regional transportation investments for the next 20 years.

Stride Forward assessed the region’s existing and future transportation needs and developed a transportation plan that includes roadways, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, and accessible transportation. The process considered expected changes in population and the economy, and the land uses needed to support them when planning for Greater Flagstaff’s transportation needs!


Residents like you know that realizing this vision means we must tackle some big challenges, like climate change and affordability, and we must do it together. Stride Forward is how we’ll get there.

Onward & Upward

Changing course is at times desirable, necessary, or both. How we choose is key. MetroPlan provides two (2) scenarios for your consideration, Onward and Upward, and evaluated them against new policies and perspectives brought by our changing world.


Onward since the Blueprint 2040 transportation plan, there are new information and policies on climate, social justice, and equity, even the nature of our daily work lives. We faced these new realities by moving “Onward”, a scenario that stays the course of current land use and transportation plans. We also venture “Upward” to meet these challenges in new ways.
