"Inclusion"

Diversity, equity and inclusion

Viewing investments through a diversity, equity and inclusion lens would ensure all users benefit from improved access to transit.

"Slow speed network"

Slow speed network

Policies could require that on- and off-street networks be designed for a future where electric bikes and similar devices are common place.

 

"Partnerships"

Public-private partnerships

Washington County could work with ridehailing, bike-sharing and other services to provide first-and-last mile access to transit, particularly light rail stations.

"Development"

Development incentives

Incentives - such as parking reductions and increased commercial/residential densities - could be offered to developers that integrate new mobility options into projects.

 

"Right-of-way"

Regulation of the right-of-way

Managing/utilizing public right-of-way in a safe and equitable manner could improve transit access and safety. These policies could also include permitting and fee collection of bike-sharing, scooter-sharing and/or carsharing. 

"Commute reduction"

Commute reduction

Policies that encourage alternatives to single-occupancy driving could be implemented for commuters. This could include transportation demand management programs.
