Traffic & Transportation

Efficient and well-maintained road systems run throughout the Boise-Nampa MSA, giving employees quick and easy travel to and from the workplace. Major highways also connect the MSA to other Northwest and Western markets, such as Salt Lake City, Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. The average commute time in the MSA is 20.2 minutes—20 percent faster than the national average and considerably less than other urbanized areas in the West.

The Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) is creating a new Public Participation Committee (PPC) to encourage broader community participation in transportation planning issues. The PPC will help COMPASS expand its public outreach and participation activities, such as assisting with public meetings and other events, and efforts to reach the traditionally underserved, such as ethnic minorities, senior citizens, low-income residents, and those with disabilities.

The MSA is served by regional and national bus lines, Union Pacific Railroad, and major freight companies, which put it within a day’s freight-travel time to a total population of more than 17 million people.
