Charlotte Shared Streets  CLT Shared Streets

​Charlotte Shared Streets is a pilot program intended to support outdoor exercise; create a safer environment for people walking, wheelchair rolling, and biking; and promote physical distancing of at least 6 feet by identifying low-speed neighborhood streets as “Shared Streets.” 


Envisioning Safer Streets for Charlotte

Vision Zero Commitment 

​The 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.


Charlotte WALKS

Silver Walk Friendly Communities

Charlotte is designated as a Silver-level community due to the city’s commitment to improving the pedestrian experience through innovative planning, policy and staff support. We are all pedestrians. Walkability is an issue affecting every Charlottean. Effective transportation is about more than moving cars, buses, and bikes. It's about moving people. Creating great places to walk is the foundation of a successful transportation system.

Uptown CycleLink

Charlotte has roughly 190 miles of bikeways. Most of those facilities were built through an opportunistic approach focused more on identifying leftover road space than supporting a connected network of comfortable, high-quality bike facilities. In recent years that focus has changed, and city leaders have begun working on plans to create a “AAA” (All Ages and Abilities) bike network and transform Charlotte into a world-class bicycle city. With over 20 miles of “AAA” bikeways and trails in design, Charlotte is truly on the verge of something big. The Uptown CycleLink is a critical focus of that effort.

Charlotte Receives Statewide Urban Planning Award for Charlotte Walks Pedestrian Plan

The City of Charlotte was recently recognized with a “Marvin Collins Outstanding Planning” award from the North Carolina chapter of the American Planning Association (NCAPA). Each year the NCAPA gives awards for the best urban planning projects in the state. Charlotte received the Comprehensive Planning award in the Large Community category for its Charlotte WALKS: Pedestrian Plan. One of the NCAPA awards committee members called Charlotte WALKS “…the most comprehensive pedestrian plan I have ever seen.”
