The Commission provides a broad array of services for the benefit of the 347,000 residents of Planning District 16, including regional environmental, energy-conservation, hazard mitigation and rural transportation planning programs; operation of GWRideConnect, the region’s nationally-recognized rideshare brokerage that facilitates and promotes vanpooling and transit use, and; serving as staff to its sister board, the Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, which is the federally-recognized transportation-planning commission serving Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford.
