Mobility Management

Mobility management is the professional practice of coordinating transportation resources on behalf of passengers. It usually focuses on coordination between different agencies providing transportation, and may include a technological component, such as scheduling and dispatching software, or regional website-based demand-response services.[1] The National RTAP (Rural Transit Assistance Program) provides resources, like a Coordination and Mobility Management Toolkit, to transit managers on operating mobility management programs. [2]

According to the National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM), mobility managers convene their clients, planners, and other stakeholders to design and launch new mobility options. [3]

NCMM has identified the follow core competencies for mobility managers:[4]

1. Be willing to address community transportation challenges

3. Develop solutions that address unique community challenges
4. Create process improvements
