Culture and its Impact on Behavior
Working Across the Social Ecology to Transform our Approach
The Positive Culture Framework 7-Step Process
Key Skills to Increase Effectiveness
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

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.
