Mobility and Transportation

Outcome Statement

Fairfax County is a community where residents, businesses, visitors and goods can move efficiently, affordably and safely throughout the County and beyond via our well-maintained network of roads, sidewalks, trails and transit options.


(Below you will find supporting work of this priority area to date. More updates will be added as the strategic planning process continues.)


  1. Efficiency of the county’s multimodal transportation network (congestion, travel time, etc.).
  2. Condition and cost of transportation-related infrastructure (technology, brick and mortar, communication).
  3. Safe and secure transportation network for all users (drivers, cyclists and pedestrians).
  4. Affordable and equitable accessibility to transportation options.
  5. Sustainability and environmental impact of transportation-related network and activity.


(What's an indicator? Indicators are ways to measure the county’s progress, both for the community at large and for county government. They are clear, quantifiable and they help manage progress toward achieving strategies in the strategic plan. They are statements that express what we hope to achieve. These are NOT specific performance metrics at this point.)

(What's a challenge question? A challenge question is a clear articulation of the diagnosed problem/opportunity that people are experiencing. It is informed by evidence, data, subject matter expertise, outside-in perspectives and on-the-ground realities. Challenge questions are phrased in a way that drives toward an impact, allowing for a variety of solutions.)
