Advancing Mobility Management
Jun 11 – Jun 12 all-day

CLICK HERE FORM INFORMATION & REGISTRATION

 

Description:

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.

Traditionally, mobility management has focused on meeting the needs of individuals and groups (e.g., people with disabilities, older adults, low-income), in particular by coordinating and improving human services transportation. However, when implemented with a systems perspective, mobility management can 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 integrated mobility services within a community, that meets the needs of all customers better.

This course is designed to help build the capacity of transit professionals to implement and scale up mobility management strategies and initiatives and expose participants to promising practices in the field.  Topics to be addressed include but not limited to:

  • Leading change in your organization and community
  • Articulating a mobility management vision, goals and desired outcomes
  • Building connections among integration partners
  • Tools to assist in partnership development
  • Measuring mobility management success and performance
  • Program and project implementation
  • Communication, outreach and marketing

Audience:

Mobility management professionals with 1-5 years of experience in transportation or mobility-related field and who play a role in implementing mobility management strategies, including: public transit agency professionals; 5310 sub-recipients; human services transportation providers; planning organization professionals; Veterans Administration employees; Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) service providers and others.

Managing Community Mobility
Jun 11 – Jun 12 all-day

CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION & REGISTRATION

 

Managing Community Mobility

National Transit Institute

Description:
The customer base for transportation services has expanded greatly. Due to demographic shifts, changing job markets, environmental concerns, increasing pressure to find alternatives to the single-occupancy vehicle, and suburban/exurban land use patterns, the transportation needs of the population are changing and increasing.

Characteristics of travelers today include people with disabilities as well as low-income individuals. These groups are interested in using more independent modes of transportation services as well as improving the current system. Transportation services are sometimes fragmented and/or duplicative, creating inefficiencies for customers and extra costs for programs needing transportation. Additionally, transit services may stop at jurisdictional lines and not connect with other modes or jurisdictions.

Mobility, human service, and transportation professionals struggle to create ride options to meet the needs of these disparate consumer groups. It is time to put the pieces of this puzzle together to make a seamless transit network for those who need it. Mobility management strategies address this need in an inclusive and non-threatening manor for both human service and public transit as well as the automobile industry.

This course will examine creative approaches to resolving fragmented and/or duplicative transportation systems to create a more seamless and cost-efficient network with a customer-focused mindset.

Audience:
Human service professionals, transit providers, transit agency staff and Board members, brokerage firm personnel, workforce professionals, state agency staff, planners, MPOs, TMAs, Council of Governments, and transit managers who coordinate mobility for all people.

Objectives:

  • Introduce the concept of mobility management and its application to transportation operations at the community level.
  • Identify funding resources available for implementing and operating mobility management programs.
  • Describe how to develop the Coordinated Public Transit and Human Service Transportation Plan Coordinated Plan.
  • Identify the necessary tools and resources to effectively implement a mobility management program.
  • Present case studies of successful mobility management models.
  • Discuss the skills of a mobility manager.

Goals:
The goal of this course is to help mobility, human service, and transit professionals examine creative approaches to resolve fragmented and/or duplicative transportation systems in order to create a more seamless and cost-efficient network with a customer-focused mindset.

Length:
2 days

Fee:

  • $300.00 for Contractor, Consulting, Non-USA Transportation or Government Agency, Other.

Creating a Safety Net: How to Maximize Fleet Operations
Jun 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION & REGISTRATION

 

Fleet operations during a public safety event can be a challenge. Because the situation is dynamic and unpredictable, it can be difficult to coordinate fleet assets and personnel.

The key to maximizing fleet operations during an event is through clear communication. However, first responders from different organizations often find they’re literally on different wavelengths, making coordination difficult or nearly impossible.

Luckily, there is an interoperable communications network available that helps fleets to:

  • Be connected in near real time virtually anywhere a vehicle is located
  • Reduce communication barriers between agencies
  • Have clearer situational awareness during an event or emergency
  • Respond more quickly and appropriately with the right people and the right vehicles

To learn how your organization can create a communication safety net, sign up for the webinar today!
