Fate will support a safe, accessible, and efficient system for multiple transportation modes.

A safe and well-connected transportation system is vital for any community to support existing and attract new residents and businesses. The transportation system in Fate today is primarily auto-oriented, but if strategic improvements were made, there could be an increase in bicycle and pedestrian use for both commuting and recreational purposes.

The goals in this section are focused on providing a multi-modal transportation network, completing the thoroughfare system, and working with partners to improve and maintain the existing roadway system. In total there are 13 total strategies related to connected transportation system, three of which are considered high priority for implementation.
