What is a mobility plan?
A mobility plan is a tool that cities use to address the public's ability to travel to and from destinations. Connectivity between live, work, and play opportunities as well as access to transportation options to make those trips are emphasized in a mobility plan.
What is the purpose of Connect Dallas?
Connect Dallas will provide the first-ever strategic transportation investment strategy for the City. The strategy will outline policy, program, and project investment recommendations that will enhance the public's ability to travel to and from destinations within Dallas. All forms of transportation will be considered, including biking, walking, transit, automobiles, freight, and new mobility options, such as bike-share, transportation network companies and e-scooters.
Who is leading development of Connect Dallas?
The Dallas Department of Transportation is developing Connect Dallas collaboratively with other City departments. This effort is also being coordinated with partner agencies such as the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), Dallas County, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA), and Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.
When will Connect Dallas be complete?
Connect Dallas is being developed over a 12-month period. City Council adoption and final plan rollout are anticipated in March/April 2020.
How can I get involved?
We value your input! The public will have various opportunities to provide insights for consideration in Connect Dallas. Surveys, focus groups, public workshops, and virtual meetings will all be used to obtain public input. Also, a Meeting In A Box package will be developed to aid communities in having discussions about mobility at the neighborhood level.
The first public survey will be available on the Connect Dallas webpage in late July 2019. Please visit the webpage regularly for updates on scheduling of focus groups, public workshops, and virtual meetings that will occur between August and December 2019.
