Multimodal Transportation Planning

The Multimodal Transportation Planning Division plays a fundamental role in the City’s vision for the future of transportation in Norfolk. We oversee project development & public engagement efforts for the City’s transportation safety projects, including the Multimodal Transportation Master Plan. We also manage the Lime micro-mobility program as well as Norfolk’s Vision Zero program.

Transportation Planning Division staff also serve as liaisons for Norfolk’s Bicycling, Pedestrian, and Active Transportation Commission.

Key Initiatives

  • Multimodal Norfolk: Norfolk's Multimodal Transportation Master Plan defines the direction for the City's transportation system over the coming years. Multimodal Norfolk provides the framework for large and small decisions about transportation projects, priorities, coordinated planning with land use decisions, public/private initiatives, infrastructure projects, and more.
  • Vision Zero: The City of Norfolk has adopted a Vision Zero Policy as an approach to eliminate all pedestrian and bicycle fatalities and injuries and to make the city's streets safer for all users.
  • Micro-Mobility Program: Lime offers a quick commute around the city via e-scooters and e-bikes to address the "first mile-last mile" access issue of traditional public transit.
  • Bike-Pedestrian Counters: Automatic counting equipment that provides continuous count data for bicycles and pedestrians to understand the trends of these two alternative transportation modes.
