​Transportation Action Plan (TAP)

What is it?

The Transportation Action Plan (TAP) is the City's multi-modal transportation plan. The plan considers the transportation challenges and opportunities facing Charlotte over the next 25 years, and establishes the overall vision, programs, projects, and funding necessary to keep Charlotte moving.

What's happening?

The TAP was originally adopted in 2006, and is updated every five years. Since early 2016, staff  have been updating the TAP to reflect the transportation challenges and needs of a city of 1.2 million people in 2040.  The 2016 TAP update also takes a fresh look at the goals, policies, programs and projects last identified in the 2011 TAP update.

How can I provide input?

Public input has been essential in refining Charlotte's transportation vision and priorities over the past year. The City is now in the final stages of drafting the TAP update. Please share your thoughts on the draft plan by providing feedback online or joining city staff at upcoming meetings.
