Florida DOT celebrates third annual Mobility Week

Nov. 3, 2020

Event to promote transportation options, highlight transportation achievements, and roll out new initiatives

From Oct. 30 to Nov. 6, the Florida DOT (FDOT) and partners from across the state are celebrating the agency's third annual Mobility Week to encourage residents to make smart, efficient, and safe transportation choices.

Throughout Mobility Week, FDOT and partners—including cities, counties, metropolitan/transportation planning organizations, transit agencies, regional organizations, employers, and transportation agencies—will host events to promote transportation options, highlight transportation achievements, and roll out new initiatives or policies.

“The department is dedicated to providing an innovative transportation system that fits the needs and lifestyles of Florida’s residents and visitors,” FDOT Secretary Kevin J. Thibault, P.E., said in a statement. “We are proud to partner with organizations throughout the state during Mobility Week to promote transportation mode choices and to work toward adopting policies that promote sustainable mobility in order to ensure a safe, efficient transportation system.”

Since the introduction of Mobility Week, FDOT has hosted more than 300 events across each of FDOT’s seven districts and in 53 counties to share information on travel choices available to the public including transit, walking, bicycling, driving safely, and ride-sharing.

This year, the department has debuted the Mobility Week Virtual Conference Center to increase availability to more people throughout the state. Virtual visitors will learn about transit agencies, local transportation planning efforts, as well as be able to register for live events and workshops.

Mobility Week also features a statewide bicycle challenge known as the Love to Ride Florida challenge. The competition kicks off on Oct. 30 and lasts through Nov. 30, 2020.
