One of the mobility-related issues that has come up in the debates for the June 18th KCMO Mayoral and City Council election is the idea of a city-level Department of Transportation, or DOT. It’s an idea that we have been researching and studying for some time now. This is why we believe a KC DOT could be an effective strategy for improving mobility across the city and addressing the many challenges of a fractured transportation structure spread across multiple silos in City Hall. It could be especially effective in addressing long standing community frustration with the pace of improvements for people who walk, bike, and use transit.
