The City has developed a multimodal transportation plan to set a vision for transportation in Fairfax City and identify improvements and projects that will enhance safety and mobility and will sustain the city as one of the region's most vibrant and livable places.
What is this plan about?
Transportation is about more than just being able to move from where we are to where we want to go safely, reliably, and predictably. Transportation impacts how much time and money we must spend, what jobs we take, which schools our children go to, where we shop, our physical fitness and the health of our environment.
What does "multimodal" mean?
Multimodal refers to the multiple ways people have to get around – car, bus, train, bike and walking – and looks at connections between these different modes of transportation. It also looks at their strengths and challenges as they are today and how that might change (for the better!) if we had more options, more networks and more incentives.
How does this plan relate to the Comprehensive Plan?
The plan is being developed in concert with the update of the City’s Comprehensive Plan – Livable Fairfax. Integrating transportation planning with land use, historic preservation, open space and community facility planning will ensure our transportation systems, policies and investments help us achieve these larger goals as well.
