With a rapidly-growing population and the increasing demands on the whole system, it is essential to take steps to keep DC moving. The Idea Exchange will introduce moveDC, a collaborative transportation planning effort to incorporate all methods of transportation in the District of Columbia into a single Multimodal Long Range Transportation Plan.
“This planning effort will help shape the future of transportation in the District,” said DDOT Director Terry Bellamy. “This plan will focus on bringing together transit, vehicular, bicycle, pedestrian and freight recommendations to create a seamless, convenient transportation system for the District.”
moveDC is led by DDOT's Policy, Planning and Sustainability Administration (PPSA) and is expected to be completed by early 2014. After the Idea Exchange, there will be workshops, public meetings, surveys, and other ways to stay engaged in the process.
