Novel Models of Transport
Just 10 years ago, living in a major city without a car was considered an eccentric behavior. Ten years has made a lot of difference. We live in an age of bike-share, car-share, real time transit, automated and connected vehicles that has made it easier to carry a smartphone than own a car. But there are challenges that remain, and Mobility21 aims to find the solutions.
Regional Planning and Transportation Priorities
Our communities were built to accommodate cars first. But as population pressure grows, we need to put the focus back on the people who live there. At Mobility21, we’re recognizing the limits of our current roadway systems, finding ways to increase transit efficiency and novel modes of transportation and helping communities prepare for the not-so-distant future of transportation.
Increased Opportunity Access that Promote Equity
The aging and inadequate transportation infrastructure is an issue for us all, but no one feels it harder than the most impoverished citizens in isolated city neighborhoods and rural communities. The system leaves many Americans hoping to better themselves stuck without access to jobs, education or human services. Upward mobility relies on the ability to get around efficiently. Access to quality transportation is the first step.
