Creating a multimodal DOT

This panel discussion overviews the efforts being made at various agencies around the US that are making significant efforts to change their culture, programs and processes to become a more integrated, multimodal-focused organization that supports smart growth and sustainability principles and system investments using a practical solutions approach. Culturally complete streets only occur with the support and involvement of the full range of agencies that own and operate street and roadways in urban, suburban and rural contexts. This session will show what progressive agencies are doing to change their culture from a vehicle-capacity improvement focused organization to a truly multimodal organization that considers and serves all modes throughout the planning, funding, design, operations, maintenance and management phases of an agency's programs.
