The District Department of Transportation’s mission is to equitably deliver a safe, sustainable and reliable multimodal transportation network for all residents and visitors of the District of Columbia.  


The District Department of Transportation will continue to be a national leader in creating safety and mobility solutions for the existing and emerging transportation challenges within our community. We will prioritize building safer infrastructure across all 8 wards, utilize innovative technologies and strategies to reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions and expand our transit systems to connect residents to economic opportunities. 

Vision Zero

Vision Zero is a Mayor Muriel Bowser initiative, which states that Washington, DC, will reach zero fatalities and serious injuries to travelers of our transportation system, through more effective use of data, education, enforcement, and engineering. Vision Zero aims to improve pedestrian and bicycle transportation safety by showcasing effective local actions, empowering local leaders to take action, and promoting partnerships to advance pedestrian and bicycle safety. 


moveDC is a collaborative effort led by DDOT to develop a bold and implementation-focused vision for the District of Columbia's transportation future.
