The Office of Modal Development acts as a tool to better connect, develop, and implement the freight planning process through coordination of government-owned and privately-owned resources in creating multimodal connections
to transform Florida's economy in becoming a global hub for trade, logistics, and export-oriented manufacturing.
Divisions: Aviation and Spaceports | Freight and Multimodal Operations | Seaports | Public Transit
In recognition of the significant role that freight mobility plays as an economic driver for the state, the Office of Modal Development was created in December 2011. Working collaboratively on multimodal initiatives, the
office includes the Aviation Office, the Freight and Multimodal Operations Office,
the Seaports Office, the Spaceports Office, and Public Transit Office.
These offices continue to work with federal and local government partners in planning, coordination, financing, grant management, ridership, and regional analysis. These offices also serve as a tool to better connect, develop, and implement a planning process in order to maximize the use of the existing facilities and to integrate and coordinate the various modes of transportation, including the combined utilization of both government-owned and privately-owned resources.
The office works in conjunction with the other offices and organizations in the areas of operations, corridor planning, statistics, and further development of the Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) and other planning efforts.
Office Mission Statement
The Modal Development Offices will develop motor carrier, rail, transit, seaport, waterways, aviation and spaceport opportunities through program and project management in order to support the Florida Department of Transportation comprehensive multimodal transportation system.
