By crafting innovative mobility solutions, local governments have a unique opportunity to rethink the future of their streets and who they serve. These could include alternative transportation options (like bike lanes or rideshares), ways to reclaim streets through pedestrianization, or a better understanding of commuting and traffic patterns.
Engage to understand current commuting patterns, why people travel the way they do, where to invest and how to do so with an eye towards economic development that builds more dense, walkable cities.
Making public transportation an attractive, accessible option for community members is top of mind for many local governments. Use engagement to better align infrastructure and transit spending with your community’s commuting needs and preferences.
As your city builds miles of high-quality, protected bike lanes, your community members can help you understand where current investments are working well and where new ones are needed.
