Transportation Options in Every Neighborhood

HTDOT: Access for all

Help us bring Houstonians the safe and diverse transportation options we deserve. Give now.

We all deserve options: to walk to your neighborhood place, safely ride your bike through town or hop on a bus or train to get to your daily destinations. In Houston, we already have everything we need to get around in a car, but our other options are limited. The imbalance we experience every day is a reflection of our imbalanced transportation spending and the kinds of projects our decision makers prioritize.. With your help, we’re going to change that.

The Houston Tomorrow Department of Transportation challenges our decision makers public and private to remedy these gaps in our regional fabric and proposes best practice solutions for providing more transportation options for every Houstonian.

This means:

Dedicated staff working on getting pilot Neighborhood Greenways on the ground in Houston Super Neighborhoods. 

Meaningful analysis, mapping, and action opportunities to support good projects in the regional TIP Call for Projects process in 2017. Coalition building to balance funding allocations and catalyze a pipeline of projects.

Developing a comprehensive plan for regional Bus Rapid Transit to connect across the region.

Supporting the move to finally get the University Line on the ground.

Spreading the Complete Streets movement to all 134 towns and cities and 13 counties of the Houston region - so that every kid in every neighborhood will feel safe walking and biking.

A more balanced transportation framework with more options for everyone means more opportunity to live an active and healthy lifestlye, more opportunity for public life, more efficient lifestlyes that reduce our carbon footprint and a more just and equitable environment where cars do not determine one’s ability to compete in the economic market. With our current public health and environmental crises, there is no better time to invest in the kinds of infrastructure that address these threats.

If you want to see safe sidewalks, bikelanes, lightrail/bus service and connected, walkable neighborhoods, help us raise $40,000 to make the work of the Houston Tomorrow Department of Transportation possible.

Give Now.

Every donor over $100 will become a member of HTDOT. This means you will get member prices at various events as well as your official Houston Tomorrow Department of Transportation shirt. Every donor over $250 will also get the official HTDOT coffee mug and hat. Every donor above $1,000 will get a seat on the Houston Tomorrow Transportation Commission.
