Welcome to APTA’s Innovative Mobility Hub!
In an age in which more and more people are using local transportation, consumers and transit agencies alike are identifying a need for more highly coordinated mobility options.
Many transit agencies are embracing the concept of ‘mobility management’, which is a strategic approach to designing and delivering transportation services that starts and ends with the customer. It begins with a community vision in which the entire transportation network - public transit, private operators, cycling and walking, volunteer drivers, and others - works together with customers, planners, and stakeholders to deliver the transportation options that best meet the community's needs.
When implemented, mobility management will move transit agencies away from their roles as fixed-route service operators and toward collaboration with other transportation providers. The idea behind this approach is to create a full range of well synchronized mobility services within a community.
With the mobility management approach, transit resources are efficiently coordinated, enabling customers to make better decisions, as well as improved customer service.
