The way people drive, take the bus, and bike, could soon change. The Omaha City Council voted to re-vamp the city's long-term transportation plan.
The council voted five to two, passing a "master plan" that is suppose to be financially sustainable, and improve the bus system and bike lanes. The goal is make it so that people feel like they have options when it comes to getting around the city.
"What I look at is cost," Marty Brown said. "I think our government is over-focused on too many issues and this is just another cost that we have to pay in Omaha."
"I think that we need this in Omaha," Angela Eikenberry said. "We know that we can't afford to continue on as business as usual. The costs of transportation are increasing and not really meeting the needs of everyone."
Decisions on how to pay for the plan will be made in the future.
