Mobility on Demand: A Smart, Sustainable, and Equitable Future

The U.S. Department of Transportation and the Transportation Research Board (TRB) co-hosted a workshop on Mobility on Demand (MOD)—A Smart, Sustainable, and Equitable Future at the 98th Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board in Washington, D.C. The workshop facilitated a dialogue among over 150 participants from public-sector organizations, private companies, nonprofit research groups, and educational institutions. Government, industry, and academic thought leaders presented and participated in panel discussions about the pilot projects, public–private partnerships, research, and next steps, emphasizing the future of multimodal MOD. In the second half of the workshop, attendees participated in interactive breakout sessions and reported back on next steps for preparing for the transition to autonomy and developing public policy, such as pricing to optimize sustainability and ensure equitable outcomes. The workshop emphasized the role of public transit, shared mobility, and automation shaping the future of mobility. The workshop also highlighted key opportunities for public policies related to equity, pricing, rights-of-way management, public transit automation, and shared automated vehicle deployments. This workshop synopsis covers findings and discussions from the event and summarizes the key topics explored throughout the day.
