UPDATED: The May 1 General Election has happened, and 8 Incumbents held onto their seats (D1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 & 12); 3 are going into runoffs (D4, 7 & 14); and 3 open seats will go into runoffs (D2, 11 & 13). We congratulate all the candidates, and wish luck to those that are moving on to the runoffs.
See important dates as the campaigns continue below.
We have updated the Mobility Voters Guide to include the responses we received from those that are headed to the Runoffs. We will be asking some additional questions of these candidates, so stay tuned for those.
Perhaps now more than ever, where City Council candidates stand on the topic of mobility is of critical importance. With 12 candidates still in the race (down from 55), drilling down on that aspect of their campaign becomes even more important, so we hope the 2021 Dallas City Council Mobility Voters Guide is of assistance as you make your decisions.
This next Council is coming in at a time when being bold, and envisioning our City as something other than car-centric is imperative to the future of mobility options, and the citizens ability to utilize alternative modes of transportation, safely and comfortably.
The incoming Council will play a pivotal role in the update to the Dallas Bike Plan; advancing the goals of the 2019 CEPAC; creating the strategy for Dallas Vision Zero; will be kicking off the Connect Dallas Mobility Plan; and are the key to the funding & strategy that will be needed to make all of these a reality.
YOUR VOICE & YOUR VOTE IS NEEDED!!
Make plans to vote, and get your friends and family out to vote too.

Connect Dallas is the City’s first five-year strategic transportation vision, a multimodal plan that will consider all forms of transportation, including biking, walking, transit, automobiles, freight, and new mobility options, such as bike-share, transportation network companies and e-scooters.
Through the planning process, City leadership, residents, planners, and stakeholders are working together to develop a transportation system that supports the City’s housing, economic, equity and sustainability goals. The plan is led by the Dallas Department of Transportation and should be comeplete in 2020.
