We need YOU at this meeting!!
Several years back now, stakeholder meetings for the Main-Columbia-Abrams Complete Streets bond project were held, and concerns heard, resulting in some changes to the plans that are arguably less safe for vulnerable road users, mostly related to parking.
We advocated then, and continue to advocate for the bike/mobility lanes on this very important connecter be safe and usable by anyone from 8-80, which means that it is intuitive, well protected, and minimizes the interactions with cars. This is NOT just because it is safer for people on bikes, but because it is part of a bigger picture of making it safer for ALL, including pedestrians and people in cars too. Road diets work when they are done well, but are less successful when there are random changes in the pathway.
Your voice is needed to help us advocate for the big picture of these changes, and how bike/mobility lanes are an important part of the goal for a safer roadway. I think we can all agree that this is what we want.
Please share and get the word out!!

The 2021 Dallas City Council Mobility Voters Guide was an effort to gain insight into the candidates positions on mobility related topics, and more than half of the candidates responded and shared.
We have updated the Mobility Voters Guide to include the responses we received from those that were re-elected/elected to Council during this election.
Perhaps now more than ever, where City Council candidates stand on the topic of mobility is of critical importance. This 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.
This 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.
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.
We still have a long way to go, but we have A PLAN!
All the paths, installed, funded, and panned in parks and trails through the city.
Here's what's on the ground now.
