CDOT Pilot Programs
NoDa On-street Parking Enforcement Pilot:
The Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) is starting a pilot project beginning in January 2018 to improve traffic and pedestrian safety in NoDa.
CDOT is increasing awareness, education and enforcement of on-street parking regulations in the area bounded by North Davidson Street to North Alexander Street, from North Brevard to 36th streets. Visit the NoDa On-street Parking Pilot page for more information.
Dockless Bike Share Pilot:
In response to interest from dockless bike share providers, the Charlotte Department of Transportation has enacted a Bike Share Pilot Program that allows permit holders to maintain a fleet of up to 500 bicycles within Charlotte's city limits. The Pilot Program will run for one year. At the end of the Pilot Program, Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT) will evaluate the success of the program, and may recommend ordinance changes to City Council that would allow multiple bike share vendor operations within the city's right-of-way. The permit and permit requirements are available here: Charlotte Bike Share Permit Requirements. Please complete the survey to help us gauge public opinion of the program and identify opportunities for improvement: Dockless Bike Share Survey. For more information, visit the Bike Share Pilot Program page.
The Plaza Separated Bicycle Lane Demonstration Project:
The Plaza Demonstration Project Findings Report is now available. This report summarizes the separated bicycle lane project that occurred on The Plaza from May 7 through May 14, and includes summary data on vehicle speeds and counts, bicycle activity, and from public input collected during and after the project was completed.
Car Share Pilot:
The City, in partnership with Zipcar, has launched a car share pilot program, giving Charlotte's community members access to another transportation choice to get around town. For the initial pilot program, Zipcar will provide car share vehicles for six on-street parking spaces (designated by CDOT) and six off-street parking spaces (located in parking garages) throughout Uptown and South End. In addition, Zipcar will continue to provide car share services at Charlotte Douglas International Airport and UNC Charlotte. Visit Car Share Pilot Program for more information.
Neighborhood Traffic Circles Pilot:
City forces installed two temporary neighborhood traffic circles or "mini-roundabouts" at the following intersections: Belrose Lane at Castlewood Road, and Jameston Drive at Irby Drive. Over a period of several weeks, these two neighborhood traffic circles will be evaluated for their effectiveness as a traffic calming and placemaking treatment.
