Goal: Improve mobility for all users of the transportation system in Arlington County.
Mobility refers to the ability of a person to move from place to place. It is measured by tracking indicators like the number of trips taken, distance traveled, and travel time. Mobility is often used as an economic development indicator; the affluence of a community impacts its access to transportation options, which in turn impacts mobility.
Arlington is striving to continue to improve the mobility of all our residents by focusing on how a well-planned variety of land uses, access to excellent transportation options, and well-designed infrastructure can increase mobility, which would in turn increase access to many more destinations.
