FDOT Partners Celebrate Sixth Annual Mobility Week
TALLAHASSEE, FL – From Oct. 29 to Nov. 5, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and partners across the state are celebrating the sixth annual Mobility Week. Cities, counties, metropolitan/transportation planning organizations, transit agencies, and more will host events to encourage Floridians to make efficient and safe transportation choices, promote multimodal transportation options, and roll out new initiatives and policies.
“Mobility Week is a demonstration of our ongoing commitment to providing an innovative transportation system that fits the needs and lifestyles of Florida’s residents and visitors,” said FDOT Secretary Kevin J. Thibault, P.E. “Across the state, organizations partner to promote transportation mode choices while working toward policies that foster sustainable mobility. Together, we can ensure a safe and efficient transportation system for our great state.”
Since Mobility Week’s introduction in 2016, more than 400 events have been hosted across each of FDOT’s eight districts and in all 67 counties. These events promote travel choices such as public transit, walking, bicycling, safe driving, and ridesharing.
Highlights this year include:
- Virtual and in-person events. Events will take place both in-person and virtually with the return of the Mobility Week Virtual Conference Center. Visitors can learn about transit agencies, local transportation planning efforts, and register for live events and workshops. Learn more at virtual.mobilityweekfl.com.
- The return of the Love to Ride Florida Challenge. The statewide bicycle challenge kicks off on Oct. 29 and “cruises” through Nov. 30. Participants are eligible for up to $500 in prizes. For more information and to register, visit www.lovetoride.net/florida.

The Florida Department of Transportation’s mission is to provide a safe transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods, enhances economic prosperity and preserves the quality of the state’s environment and communities. The department is committed to building a transportation system that not only fits the current needs of Florida’s residents and visitors but also enhances mobility throughout the state to accommodate its consistent and rapid growth. The unique nature of the Sunshine State and its year-round warm climate provides numerous opportunities to achieve the department’s mission through multiple transportation modes including highways/streets, air, rail, sea, spaceports, transit, and the ever-expanding deployment of bicycle & pedestrian facilities.
