Office of Transportation Planning
The primary goal of the City of Raleigh's Office of Transportation Planning is to create a seamless and efficient multimodal transportation system. The City's transportation plan provides an integrated, multimodal approach with a goal of providing universal accessibility for all residents, employers, and services. Transportation is more than the movement of goods and services - it is the movement of people with a variety of mode choices. It is important to us to ensure those choices and to lay the framework for a quality system that moves people safely, efficiently, and enjoyably throughout the City.Learn more about the Office of Transportation Planning
