• Plan Information


    What is it? A comprehensive multimodal network plan allows a municipality to set a vision for multimodal transportation in their community, plan a multimodal network, and identify priority multimodal projects. Creation of a multimodal network plan is the first step to implementation of bicycle, pedestrian, and transit improvements and fosters a more walkable, bikeable and transit-friendly environment.

    How is it helpful? Having a plan for a multimodal network and identified projects allows the municipality to better communicate and coordinate their multimodal needs with regional planning organizations and NCDOT during transportation planning and project development.

    Who is it for? This type of plan is a good option for municipalities that do not have an existing multimodal plan or would like to update their previous multimodal or bicycle and pedestrian plan.
  • When to Choose This Type of Plan

    ​A local government would pursue a multimodal network plan rather than a bicycle or pedestrian plan when fixed route or deviated fixed route transit service is present, so that access to transit issues may be explored. A bicycle and pedestrian project acceleration study could be selected in place of a multimodal network plan when a local municipality with population under 10,000 has limited time and budget and would like an abbreviated process to zero in on the top priority projects most likely to move forward to implementation.
