2035 Mobility Goals Update
Submitted by whitemice on Mon, 10/17/2022 - 07:16
The City's Strategic Plan sets a transportation mode shift goal of 55% by 2035; meaning that 55% of commuter trips would be made via a mode other than by a single occupant vehicle [aka: a car, or in the 21st Century, more accurately: "a massive SUV or pickup"].
The latest annual report (2022) reports a non-single-occupant-vehicle mode share which has increased by ~2% to 26.90%, up from 24.90% (2021).
The Strategic Plan identifies the following commute mode share targets:
|Mode||Target (2035)||2017 value|
It is important to remember that mode shift can be accomplished principally by two methods:
- Improving service & infrastructure: More frequent public transit service, addition bike lanes, less lethal street design
- Land use changes: Additional denser housing opportunities proximate to job centers.
