Transportation and mobility play a central role in improving the quality of life for individuals, communities and the entire region, increasing economic access and equity. Transportation of goods and people does not follow political boundaries and therefore is multi-jurisdictional in nature, often exceeding community, county, Metropolitan Planning Organization and state boundaries. Centralina leads collaborative efforts to ensure our regional transportation and mobility systems work harmoniously, making the greater Charlotte area more economically competitive.
During CONNECT Our Future, a three-year Centralina-led engagement series aimed at developing regional priorities and a regional growth framework, our region identified transportation as a top priority. Since then, we have led numerous initiatives and programs to help our region achieve our transportation and mobility goals.
