The Shared-Use Mobility Center is Learning About Mobility Innovation
The Shared-Use Mobility Center has been partnering with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to help develop innovative mobility projects all over the country through the Mobility Innovation Collaborative, a program that provides technical assistance to transit agencies developing new transportation projects and shares lessons learned.
We have been working on a project to gain understanding of what drives and inhibits transportation innovation at the organizational and industry levels. We want to help facilitate innovation in transit agencies, mobility companies, and transportation focused organizations all over the country, and ultimately answer the question:
How might a tool or resource to accelerate mobility innovation be used by a transportation organization?
Over the past few months, we have administered surveys, conducted interviews, and led workshops about mobility innovation. We want to thank you for your help, participation, and insights.
We will continue to review and analyze your responses for a qualitative report to the FTA in the fall of this year. Afterwards, we will use what we have learned to develop a tool or resource to help agencies explore their innovative potential.
Thank you again for your help. To keep up-to-date with our progress, please check back here, or subscribe to SUMC’s newsletter.
If you have not yet taken our survey, please give us your thoughts below on what innovation means to you. We would love to hear from you!
