You spoke, we listened! During the development of the Worcester Now | Next long-range plan, Worcester residents identified transportation as a key concern for the City's future. The Mobility Action Plan for Safe, Equitable and Sustainable Transportation (MAP) is a year-long planning effort to develop a program of transportation policies, projects and actions to enhance the safety, sustainability and equity of the City's transportation network.
Last summer, DTM staff spoke to hundreds of people around the City about what they see as transportation challenges and opportunities, as well as their vision and priorities for improving transportation in the City. DTM did this through focus groups, interviews, discussions at public events and a survey.
After consolidating and analyzing all the feedback that we received, we have developed the draft vision, goals and strategies for improving the transportation network. This process was informed by the public input we received as well as the data and analysis conducted on the existing system.
Missed us this summer at one of our engagement events? No worries. The next round of public outreach will occur at three events this February, one virtual and two in-person (see timeline on this page). Please contact our department at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or concerns.
City Manager Eric D. Batista, along with the municipality’s Department of Transportation & Mobility, announced Tuesday the launch of the Vision Zero Safety Action Plan, a bold new commitment to road safety.
