The Transportation and Mobility Department’s (TAM) mission is to build community by connecting people to places. The Department accomplishes this within the framework of the City’s Vision, Strategic Plan, and the City Commission Annual Action Plan in order to achieve the Department's long-term objectives of providing mobile, livable, and sustainable transportation systems using creative and proactive planning, engineering, and management principles in the development and operation of the City’s diverse programs and facilities.
The Department encompasses the Executive Airport, Transportation, and Parking Services divisions and the Performing Arts Center Garage. These functions, previously performed by five other City departments, were brought together to implement the City’s vision of providing coordinated transportation planning and engineering; utilize Complete Streets principles to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders; encourage sustainable practices in project design and construction; and enhance the City’s aviation, multi-modes of transportation, and parking infrastructure through a comprehensive capital improvement program.
TAM coordinates with multiple regional partners, including the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), the Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association (TMA), the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (BMPO), South Florida Regional Transit Authority (SFRTA), Community Redevelopment Agencies (CRAs), the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to provide a safe, efficient, and viable transportation network.
