Transportation

Multi-modal transportation (public transit, walking, biking, driving) is needed to get Clevelanders to work, school, health care, shopping, access to healthy food, to places of worship and voting, to recreation, family, and friends. Flexible transportation options are essential to Cleveland’s infrastructure and growth. The city of Cleveland will use it resources to facilitate a multi-modal 21st-century transportation system that is convenient, safe, accessible, and affordable.
