Multimodal Transportation Planning

The Multimodal Transportation Planning Division plays a fundamental role in the city's vision for the future of transportation in Norfolk. Responsibilities include developing and maintaining the city’s Multimodal Transportation Master Plan, overseeing project development & public engagement efforts for transportation safety projects, and managing the Lime micro-mobility program. The division also leads the City of Norfolk's Vision Zero program and manages the city's multimodal transportation data. Transportation planning staff also serve as liaisons between the Department of Transit and Norfolk's Bicycle and Pedestrian Trails Commission.

Key Initiatives

  • Multimodal Norfolk: Norfolk’s Multimodal Transportation Master Plan 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.
  • 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. 
  • E-Scooter & E-Bike Share: Lime offers a quick commute around the city 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.
