This unique event is also designed to provide strategic opportunities to network and develop new partnerships, investments and innovative projects.
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
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
National Transit Institute
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.
Participants taking the Transportation Planning Process course receive an overview of the metropolitan and statewide transportation planning process, underscoring its relationship to informed decision-making and the required planning process. This course expands knowledge of transportation planning practice fundamentals and the ability to convey the relationship of these principles to the Federal planning program requirements. Participants gain knowledge and understanding of planning practice fundamentals through the use of engaging interactive activities.
This instructor-led training combines the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Course from the National Transit Institute (NTI) and NHI with NTI’s State and Metropolitan Transportation Programming Courses to reflect the current laws, regulations and issues relevant to the transportation planning process. This consolidated course titled is jointly developed by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in concert with their respective training branches NTI and NHI.
Please NOTE: the following 4-hour Basics of Transportation Planning web-based training (WBT) is a prerequisite and should be taken prior to participating in this instructor-led course.
Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), Regional Planning Organizations or affected nonmetropolitan transportation officials with responsibility for transportation planning, State Departments of Transportation Planning, Transportation Planning, Programming, or Project Development staff working or participating in the Statewide or Metropolitan Transportation Planning process, Transit Agencies and/or Providers, Federal Transit Administration, and Federal Highway Administration.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Explain the legislative requirements for States and MPOs to conduct the transportation planning process.
- Describe the content and purpose of statewide and metropolitan transportation plans and programs.
- Identify the steps and activities in a performance-based approach to planning and programming supported by public engagement and intergovernmental cooperation.
- Explain the relationship between the transportation planning process and other community planning processes.
- Identify participants and their roles and responsibilities in planning.
- Differentiate appropriate levels of consultation, cooperation, and engagement among stakeholders and the public.

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!
