Mobility Management: State of the States Report

Mobility improvement is becoming the goal of many transportation systems and agencies as new technologies and new ways of traveling emerge and individual preferences to trips evolve. Mobility improvement often times is plagued by lack of continuity and communication between services and between stakeholders. As the discussion in the transportation sector moves from improving ridership for specific services, or reducing congestion and on to mobility management, the role of mobility management networks, which facilitate mobility management with the goal of providing Mobility as a Service (MaaS) becomes very intrinsic and central. While these networks seemingly have an important role to play, not much is known about their structure and functionality around the various states of the country. These networks can provide a useful lens through which to view comprehensive transportation coordination efforts that emphasize the needs of disadvantaged riders, while simultaneously improving services for all riders. The goal of this phase of research is to collect and analyze the organizational structure, day-to-day operations, best practices, and challenges inherent to mobility management networks and the individuals who take part in them, either as leaders or participants. This information will shed light on several aspects of these networks including but not limited to their structure, and activities at the state level. The information is collected in two ways: (1) an electronic survey of network managers in each state; and (2) a scan of each state to compile information of the existing mobility mechanisms and services. This report presents these findings in two ways: a narrative overview and state profiles that combine demographic information with survey findings. The report concludes with a set of recommendations for transportation professionals interested in improving existing or implementing new statewide mobility management networks as well as understanding barriers to the formation and sustainability of these networks at the state level.
