ND Moves
The Statewide Active and Public Transportation Plan, or ND Moves, will review and identify existing and emerging needs and recommend strategies for the future of biking, walking, rolling, and transit across the state. State, regional, and local stakeholders will be engaged in this process to help identify needs and opportunities and provide direction on the overall vision for the North Dakota transportation system. Ultimately, the plan will help to update or establish guidance on statewide programming and policies for NDDOT, and can also provide support and guidance to local communities.
