Visit DOT's New Website

U.S Department of Transportation (DOT) has a new, redesigned website. As the site says, "DOT is here to serve the American people, and the redesigned site reflects our commitment to service by making it easier for you to find the information you need." The agency's new site has three goals:
  • To help find what users need as easily as possible.
  • To make the most popular resources more accessible.
  • To arrange our resources in line with how you think about transportation. 
New features include: content that is separated by audience interests (e.g., individuals, partners, government); a "Top Requests" section on the left side of the page that contains popular DOT website searches; and 10 different buttons that correspond to different modes of transportation.
