Transportation Planning

Transportation Planning

Transportation Master Plan - The Transportation Element of the City of Omaha Master Plan adopted in 2012 addresses the problems of increased traffic congestion and dependence on the automobile. It develops goals and policies for building a transportation system that will better incorporate the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users while continuing to accommodate the auto.

Biking in Omaha - The City of Omaha Master Plan calls for building a balanced transportation system that includes improved bicycle connections. Visit the Planning Department's Biking in Omaha page for resources and information about programs and initiatives that help to make biking in Omaha safer, easier, and more convenient.

Transit Oriented Development - In conjunction with Metro's planned Omaha Rapid Bus Transit (ORBT) project on Dodge Street, the City is undertaking a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) planning process that includes amendments to the Master Plan to support and encourage TOD along the ORBT line. It also will include developing Zoning Ordinance amendments designed to support and encourage TOD in proximity to ORBT stations. For more information on ORBT, visit http://www.rideorbt.com

City of Omaha Complete Streets Design Guide - The City's Complete Streets Policy adopted in 2015 called for the creation of a Complete Streets Design Guide that would direct the planning and design of the street network to better accommodate all transportation modes and users in Omaha. The Complete Streets Design Guide public review draft was released in August 2019. The draft, along with comment forms and instructions for submitting comments, can be found on the Public Works Standard Plates/Curb Ramps and Specifications page. After a six-month comment and testing phase, the City will revise and adopt the Complete Streets Design Guide.
