Charlotte Department of Transportation (CDOT)

The Charlotte Department of Transportation's key goal is... Connecting Charlotte.

CDOT is committed to enhancing the driving, bicycling and walking experience through planning, operating and maintaining the City's transportation choices for residents and visitors. An important objective is to sustain, maintain and enhance the City's transportation infrastructure.



Safer Streets for Charlotte

The City of Charlotte is renewing its commitment to safer streets in 2018 with the creation of Vision Zero, an action plan designed to reduce crashes and eliminate traffic-related deaths and severe injuries by 2030. Why? Because even one traffic-related death is too many.

Join us at a community event to tell us about your experiences on Charlotte’s streets and help inform the Vision Zero action plan. Visit to learn more.

Can’t make it to an event? You can still help. Use this interactive map to mark areas that make you feel safe and unsafe as a pedestrian, cyclist, transit user or motorist.

Charlotte Walks

Charlotte is designated as a Silver-level community due to the city’s commitment to improving the pedestrian experience through innovative planning, policy and staff support. We are all pedestrians. Walkability is an issue affecting every Charlottean. Effective transportation is about more than moving cars, buses, and bikes. It's about moving people. Creating great places to walk is the foundation of a successful transportation system.
