Among Mayor Michael A. Nutter’s top priorities when he assumed office was the establishment of the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities. The Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities (MOTU) is charged with building a shared vision for transportation and coordinating decision-making among City agencies and public and private partners in order to save money and improve conditions throughout the City’s transportation system.
The Office ensures that Philadelphia’s water, electricity, and gas systems support residential and commercial needs. MOTU makes sure that the investments and plans that affect the city’s infrastructure - and the people who use it - are done with a shared vision of increased mobility and sustainability. The result of our efforts is a transportation network that supports Philadelphians can get where they are going, no matter how they choose to travel; be it by foot, bike, transit, or car.
