Mobility Plan

The 2022 Denton Mobility Plan is a multimodal mobility strategy and framework to address citywide transportation, including vehicles, transit, bicycles, and pedestrians, for years to come. The Plan will be used to guide the City of Denton's short-, mid-, and long-range mobility planning efforts.

The Capital Projects/Engineering Department has been working with Development Services and the Parks and Recreation Department to make updates to the 2022 Mobility Plan, in concert with the Comprehensive Plan Denton Plan 2040 and the Denton Parks, Recreation, and Trails Master Plan. The 2022 Mobility Plan presents a holistic, multimodal approach that serves as a combined thoroughfare, bicycle, and pedestrian master plan.

Goals & Objectives

The overall goal of the 2022 Denton Mobility Plan is to approach mobility from the perspective of finding the most efficient means of moving people and freight within and through the City over the next 30 years.

There are four primary objectives with the project:

  • Engage the community to understand mobility issues
  • Build on previous plans
  • Utilize reliable data sources to weigh mobility options
  • Develop an implementation strategy

The project will involve a number of planning activities with some of the key project components being the collection of data and stakeholder input, updates to the Denton Master Thoroughfare Plan and Bicycle Plan, creation of a Pedestrian Plan, and updates to the Denton Transportation Impact Fee.

Public Meeting Information

The 2022 Denton Mobility Plan hosted public input meetings over the course of the project. These were community-driven meetings that identify the vision and articulate the communities' priorities pertaining to mobility. The meetings were open to all residents, business owners, non-profit organizations, schools, and churches!
