Key Initiatives

  • Bike-Pedestrian Counters: automatic counting equipment will provide continuous count data for bicycles and pedestrians to understand the trends of these two alternative transportation modes.
  • Electric-Assisted Bike RFP: prepare a new RFP to obtain docked and/or dockless electric-assisted bikes as a new bike share program.
  • Multimodal Norfolk Transportation Master Plan: Norfolk’s Multimodal Transportation Master Plan that will define 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.
