The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) today announced the moveDC Idea Exchange, a family-friendly public event, held to share ideas about how District residents, workers and visitors can have convenient and reliable multimodal options that connect them to economic and quality of life opportunities. Anyone who drives, walks, bikes, rides a bus, or takes a train in DC should attend to help shape the plan to develop a bold, new transportation vision for the District. The public is invited to drop in anytime or stay throughout the day to hear information, participate in interactive activities and to join a panel discussion.
moveDC is led by DDOT's Policy, Planning and Sustainability Administration (PPSA) and is expected to be completed by early 2014. After the Idea Exchange, there will be workshops, public meetings, surveys, and other ways to stay engaged in the process. Follow the project online at www.wemoveDC.org, on Facebook (www.facebook.com/WeMoveDC) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/wemovedc).
