RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation is again honoring the towns, cities and counties that have completed the state’s best multimodal transportation projects.

From today through March 1, the state agency is seeking entries for the fourth NCDOT Mobi (“Mobility”) Awards. Those wishing to enter this year’s contest should complete an online application.
Submit Application

“The NCDOT Mobi Awards raises the profile of multimodal projects and the tremendous impact they have on communities,” said N.C. Department of Transportation Deputy Secretary for Multimodal Transportation Julie White. “We look forward to continuing the tradition of recognizing the great work of our cities and towns in making their communities more multimodal.”  

Entries should include projects that serve two or more modes of travel, including roads. They can include projects that serve bicycles, pedestrians, public transit, ferries, rail and aviation. 

Entries should describe a transportation project that was completed and put into operation, or service, after Jan. 1, 2019. Projects submitted in the 2020 and 2022 Mobi Awards contest that were not selected can be submitted again.  

Towns, cities, counties, universities/colleges, planning organizations, public transportation systems, airport authorities, and councils of government can submit projects. 

Entries will be judged in six categories. Four categories (Rural, Small Urban, Urban and Large Urban) will be based on the size of the community served by a project. A panel of judges will select winners based on several factors, including how well the project spurred investment, demonstrated problem solving and improved public health. 

All the projects will be entered into two additional categories – Innovation and Most Voted Project, or MVP. For Innovation, projects will be scored based on their innovative or creative approach. For the MVP category, project galleries will be opened to an online public vote with the winner being the project with the highest number of votes.    

Multimodal projects are an important part of North Carolina’s future. They connect people to places, provide alternative modes of travel and make the state more accessible, attractive and competitive.
