Getting Around in Charlottesville: Results from the Move2HealthEquity Community Mobility Survey

November 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

How do people get around in Charlottesville? Why don’t people walk, bike or use transit more often? What can we do about transportation in our area? Move2Health Equity’s neighborhood-based community survey provides new insight into these questions.

Join the meeting at tinyurl.com/mobilityreport.

428 people answered 15 questions in this 2021 survey about how they get around, how they would like to get around, what barriers they face and what solutions they would propose. The survey also asked residents how Covid-19 affected their transportation patterns.

Peter Krebs, of The Piedmont Environmental Council, will present the survey’s primary findings and its implications. Other members of Move2Health Equity’s Active Communities team will also be present to offer their perspectives and suggested next steps as well. The presentation will last approximately 30 minutes, followed by discussion.

The release of a 100-page report will correspond with this meeting.

The Move2Health Equity Coalition promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles for all community members. The coalition works through a Collective Impact Model in which independent member organizations combine resources to make a difference in areas where their missions overlap. Move2Health has four workgroups that address core priorities: Access to Healthcare, Healthy Spaces, Active Communities and Healthy Food Systems.

For 50 years, The Piedmont Environmental Council has worked to promote compact, livable cities, surrounded by distinctly rural lands where farms, forests, and natural systems predominate. In 2021, PEC brought together the Piedmont Mobility Alliance: a coalition of organizations that share a vision of a better-connected community for walking, biking and other forms of active transportation in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
