New Mobility West

Throughout the Rocky Mountain west, transportation policies and investments continue to prioritize vehicular traffic over—and often at the expense of—other modes of transportation.

Unfortunately, the region’s transportation systems are not only a symptom of sprawl, they create it. This outdated model drives sprawl and presents major obstacles to creating livable communities.

Great streets are the foundations of great places. We cannot build better places or more livable communities without improving our local transportation systems. Healthy local economies need safe transportation systems that connect the community and work for everyone.

Our New Mobility West Initiative is working to ‘un-sprawl’ the American West by reinvesting in downtowns, creating walkable neighborhoods, and building healthy and connected regions through equitable transportation. We focus on working with communities to create smarter approaches to transportation—from better street design to expanded connections and enhanced bike and pedestrian access.
