District Mobility Project

This report examines congestion and mobility in Washington D.C. by mode and geography and examines strategies to address this congestion. A methodology for monitoring multimodal congestion and mobility was developed and eleven performance measures were identified. The performance measures are categorized by mode (auto, bus, bicycle, pedestrian) and mobility category (congestion, reliability, accessibility). Data is analyzed including: commuter mode split, average commute time, bus ridership and overcrowding, transit coverage area, bicycle coverage area, and pedestrian friendliness index. Common mobility-challenged locations are identified using mobility maps. Each map can help determine where congestion mitigation strategies should be prioritized. The report ends with recommended action plans for the identified focus areas for years one, three, and five.
