Traffic Counts

The Villages, by nature of design, aims to minimize auto-related transportation impacts. There are opportunities for other modes to accommodate movements, the best example being the separate multi-modal transportation (golf cart/bicycle/pedestrian) trails built throughout the community including grade separated crossings at major roadways.

In addition, there are a wide range of internal commercial, recreational, and medical sites that limit the need to perform external trip making, as well as reduce the average length of trips. The internal capture rate of The Villages development is 75 percent during the p.m. peak hour.
