Goal: Expand multimodal access and connectivity to destinations both within and outside of the County.
Accessibility refers to people’s overall ability to reach key destinations such as jobs, schools, libraries, shopping, and entertainment. Connectivity within each modal network as well as between networks, such as walking or cycling to public transit stations, is a critical component of accessibility.
Access and connectivity to destinations both within and outside of the County are important factors in the quality of life of Arlington residents and employees and the economic vibrancy of our businesses. As a part of the Washington Metropolitan Region, thousands of jobs, retail establishments, entertainment venues, educational institutions, and attractions are located in and around Arlington County, but we must continue to strive to expand the list of destinations that are accessible to our residents and origins that are accessible for visitors to the County.
