The future transportation network in Metro Nashville-Davidson County is guided by Mobility 2030, one of the functional plans of the General Plan. Mobility 2030 outlines the broad principles and strategies for improving transportation in Nashville-Davidson County. Its component parts (plans for transit, sidewalks and bikeways, and streets) give specific guidance on how to improve individual streets.

  • Land use and transportation are comprehensively addressed through the guiding principles and strategies of Mobility 2030. All transportation improvements should:
  • Create efficient community form. Infrastructure should improve the movement of people and goods safely to destinations.
  • Offer meaningful transportation choices. Options for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and drivers.
  • Sustain and enhance the economy. Transportation improvements can be used to generate economic development and/or sustain property values.
  • Value safety and security.
  • Protect human health and the environment.
  • Ensure financial responsibility.
  • Address transportation from a regional perspective.

Mobility 2030 has component plans that guide transit, street, bicycle, and pedestrian infrastructure investments.
