The state of Florida is celebrating its first annual statewide Mobility Week from October 27 through November 3, 2018.
Mobility Week, successfully launched in 2016 in Central Florida, is an annual collection of outreach events intended to bring attention to safe multimodal transportation choices. The success of the Central Florida region in bringing together regional partners to promote the message of safety and multimodal transportation, prompted the expansion of the initiative statewide this year.
During Mobility Week, cities, counties, and transportation partner agencies host events to promote transportation choices, highlight transportation achievements, and roll out new initiatives or policies.

As Florida residents, Mobility Week is our opportunity to explore various transportation choices available to us.
Why not Mix-It-Up?
During Mobility Week, why not try a new mode of transportation for your commute, shopping and recreation? You might discover that you enjoy the extra exercise, meeting new people and saving money on fuel while you avoid sitting behind the wheel.
Ride the bus or train to work. Walk or bike with your kids to the park. Form a bicycle or walking group to take your kids to school. Carpool or vanpool to the office with your coworkers. Mix-It-Up!
