It’s no secret that Denver is a great place to live. Every month, new residents arrive, adding to the social and economic fabric of the city. In fact, Denver’s population has grown nearly 25% since 2010. As our population grows, we want to make sure our city meets the needs of residents today, and those of the future.
Denver Moves Everyone needs your ideas to help shape how our transportation system should improve so that we can continue to move freely and safely as our City evolves.
Mobility for Those Who Need it Most
Denverites venture about the city for its diverse offerings, visiting Federal Boulevard for the best Pho or City Park for a day at the Denver Zoo. While each neighborhood contributes to the lively culture of our great city, accessible and convenient transportation options aren’t always as easy to come by.
Some areas have miles of bike lanes; others have few or none. Some areas have reliable bus service; others cater to car owners. Some pedestrian crossings are well-lit at night; others are dim. And for many of us, transportation is a hefty monthly expense after adding up gas, maintenance, insurance, registration fees, and shared rides and bus fares.
Denver Moves Everyone will support building an equitable transportation system. This means targeting the right investments in the areas with the greatest need, allowing communities and individuals of all background to access the opportunities necessary to thrive.
Reduce Traffic Headaches and Create Safer Streets
Thousands of people travel through Denver daily! In fact, 450,000 come and go from Denver every single day. This creates traffic congestion, crashes, and delays.
Denver Moves Everyone will support building a street network that provides a range of transportation choices that are safe and convenient. This initiative aims to create better traffic flow and reduce the number of serious and fatal traffic crashes in support of Denver’s Vision Zero initiative.
Respect Mother Nature
Did you know that 28 percent of the ugly brown cloud in our air – AKA greenhouse gas emissions – is caused by transportation? That makes driving cars and trucks the largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions in the Denver.
As Earth faces climate change, Denver has a responsibility to increase access to environmentally friendly transportation options. This accessibility not only brings freedom for residents to choose the way they prefer to get around Denver, but also reduces the environmental stress on the Earth and helps provide cleaner air for us to breathe.
