The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) has launched its Advance Mobility NC initiative to provide a connected multimodal transportation system within the state.

This programme will bring together the department’s aviation, integrated mobility and rail divisions to create a multimodal transport network that aims to improve mobility for both people and freight.

As part of Advance Mobility NC, NCDOT will invest in new technologies such as autonomous transit vehicles, advanced air mobility, on-demand transportation services, mobility hubs, connected streets and freight transfer hubs.

Multimodal Transportation Secretary Julie White said:

At NCDOT, we are thinking ahead and always looking for opportunities to collaborate with other thought leaders, government entities and businesses to enhance our services and help us bring our vision for safer and more convenient transportation to fruition. Advance Mobility NC is our strategic, shared vision for what mobility will be.

NCDOT is now developing a three-year strategic plan for this initiative that will be adopted by 2024.

This plan will include investments in existing infrastructure, piloting new technologies, deploying new mobility services, partnering with industry and local governments and supporting workforce development.

NC Board of Transportation Division 8 Representative Lisa Mathis said:

Advance Mobility NC is the next step in the progression of transportation, applying modern technology to make all of these multimodal services more accessible and convenient for everyone. We hope Advance Mobility NC will be a roadmap for rapid advancement of mobility innovation.
