December 6, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Shared mobility holds enormous potential to help meet the mobility needs for underserved populations that are too often left behind in the planning process.

Presenters will discuss emerging best practices that cities are using to help address transportation equity needs in their communities. The webinar will also cover ways that transportation and policy experts can use SUMC’s Shared Mobility Toolkit – which includes a policy database, benefits calculator and mapping and opportunity analysis tool – to identify and realize opportunities for these services. SUMC’s mapping tool includes a special layer that identifies opportunities for shared mobility along with current shared mobility services and information on race and income for more than 50 North American cities.
