Design for Movement describes the bringing together of the planning and design of land use, places, streets, infrastructure and technology in a seamless and integrated way that accommodates all modes of transportation and serves all of the people that need to move about in a community.
This means that master plan documents for land use and transportation in a city or town are coordinated and mutually supportive, and accommodate multiple transportation modes and approaches for residents. It means that communities, neighbourhoods and nodes incorporate transit oriented and multi-modal oriented design principles. It means that streets become places to be and accommodate all modes and users through the use of complete street design principles. Finally, it means that intelligent transportation systems (ITS) approaches are incorporated into the planning and design of places and streets in order to improve safety and enhance individual and overall mobility
