​PLANO – The opening of Toyota’s North American headquarters on Monday, May 15, 2017, brings the first major wave of ​employees who will be testing the city’s plans to accommodate thousands, and eventually tens of thousands of people all driving, walking and using buses to get to work.​

​Plano officials say there’s no reason to panic. 

They’ve been tinkering and tweaking to prepare. The reality, though, is there will be growing pains.​

A survey of workers already in the Legacy area shows that the long-term trend is for people to make numerous trips in their cars. The city hopes they can encourage people to do something different.

“The idea is for them to park once. That is really the thrust of all of this is—to park once. So if you are an employee of Toyota, you park in your parking lot and for lunch you can get on a shuttle,” said Peter Braster, the city’s special projects director.​
