Welcome to Transportation Efficient Communities’ web hub!
This website is full of resources for planners in cities, counties, and Metropolitan and Regional Transportation Planning Organizations; local elected officials; local health practitioners; and the public interested in helping make their communities more transportation-efficient.
Everyone wants the places that they live work and play to be safe and healthy. How do you make that happen? Learn how to build equitable communities, make streets safer for all users, and promote anti-idling policies.
When land use and transportation are planned efficiently the necessities of daily life can be closer together and easier to access. This promotes walking and biking, reduces congestion and air pollution, and increases human interaction which can make a place more vibrant.
Learn how your community can support multiple modes of transportation. Multimodal options help people access jobs and services, businesses attract customers and talent, and governments save money on infrastructure. They also help make great places possible with cleaner air and water. For example, you will find best practices for planning for all modes, managing travel demand, making streets safe for all users, and improving traffic flow without adding lane miles.
