The Transportation Vision was truly a collaboration between the joint committee of the CMA/TAM, the Board of Supervisors, and the residents of Marin County. All elements of the plan were shaped by the people who live and work in the County. As a result of these public comments, literally hundreds of changes were made to the Transportation Vision. In addition, a compendium of comments were circulated to all jurisdictions. Many of these comments are especially useful to individual cities as they continue their own planning.

In addition, the planning effort began with a series of all day workshops, each concentrating on an individual mode. Outreach specific to the plan included:
