Transportation

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Charlotte Department of Transportation's key goal is... Connecting Charlotte.​

CDOT is committed to enhancing the driving, bicycling and walking experience through planning, operating and maintaining the City's transportation choices for residents and visitors. An important objective is to sustain, maintain and enhance the City's transportation infrastructure.​


Envisioning Safer Streets for Charlotte

Vision Zero CommitmentThe City of Charlotte is renewing its commitment to safer streets in 2018 with the creation of Vision Zero, an action plan designed to reduce crashes and eliminate traffic-related deaths and severe injuries by 2030. Why? Because even one traffic-related death is too many. 

Join us at a community event to tell us about your experiences on Charlotte’s streets and help inform the Vision Zero action plan. Visit CharlotteNC.gov/VisionZero to learn more. 

Can’t make it to an event? You can still help. Use this interactive map to mark areas that make you feel safe and unsafe as a pedestrian, cyclist, transit user or motorist.


CDOT Pilot Programs​

CDOT currently has several pilot programs underway, seeking community input and innovative ways to provide a variety of transportation options to everyone. Please visit the Pilot Programs page for more information on the current pilots.
