is a collaborative effort led by the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) to develop a bold and implementation-focused vision for our city's transportation future.

← Back Ideas to moveDC Public Workshops
MetroQuest is an innovative – and fun – online tool to gather your insight on how DC should reach our transportation goals. Participants had an opportunity to rate three approaches that have the potential to transform the way we travel.
1,690 total submissions
This slide asked participants to tell us which values are most important to them. A list of six values was provided, or you could add your own value.
Here’s what you told us:
- Citywide Mobility and Neighborhood Connectivity had the most top 3 ranks
- Public Space had the least top 3 ranks
Here are some of the other values you suggested:
- Efficiency in investments
- Community Diversity
- Regional Connectivity
This slide showed the performances of our three different approaches to the District transportation network asked respondents to rate them on a scale of 1 to 5 stars.
Here’s what you told us:
- About 50% rated Approach 3 “5 stars”
- About 50% rated Approach 1 either “1 star” or “2 stars”
Here’s what you said about the three different approaches:
- Staying the course will not adequately support the growing demand for alternative travel methods
- Bicycle improvement is too heavily weighted towards bike lanes rather than protected facilities
- The amount and area of transit coverage is appealing
- General approval of removing parking on rush-hour restricted corridors and a establishing downtown cordon charge
- Reduction in congestion results are inadequate
- Important to focus on residents and the emerging activity centers and not just downtown
- This approach would be very beneficial to DC residents
- General disapproval of removing restrictions on on-street parking during rush hour
- Concern about how getting downtown would be affected
On this slide we gave respondents 12 “coins” for each value and allowed them to choose how much to spend (if any) on different categories of improvements within each value.
Here’s what your coins told us:
- The overall spending between the six different values was fairly even across the board
- Citywide mobility had the most overall spending by a slim margin
- Safety and security had the least overall spending by a slim margin
This likely means that respondents generally did not skip values, and when money was spent, all 12 “coins” were allocated. Hovering over the Results links will reveal pie graphs that show the ratio of the individual aspects within each value.
Preservation and Maintenance
Safety and Security
Sustainability and Health
By overall money spent, the three most important aspects were:
- More Transit Service Hours & Frequency (Citywide Mobility)
- Targeted Safety Improvements (Safety & Security)
- More & Better Sidewalks (Neighborhood Connectivity)
By percentage of spending within a value, the three most important aspects were:
- Targeted Safety Improvement projects (25% of Safety and Security spending)
- More Transit Service Hours & Frequency (25% of Citywide Mobility Spending)
- More & Better Trails (25% of Public Space spending)
