Integration of Transportation for Improved Mobility

Mobility management and improvement have become the focal point of the federal, state, and local transportation agencies over the last decade. Even with decreasing vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) over the same time span, the congestion and delays have not improved, leading to a renewed focus on multimodal solutions at all levels. While multimodalism has been part of the transportation vocabulary for a long time — and has been aided by legislation to some extent — it has not been embraced into practice at a large scale. Advances in technology (autonomous vehicles, ridesharing services, transportation network companies, improved dynamic wayfinding systems, and improved infrastructure) are providing the paradigm shift needed to look at mobility management in a renewed light.
