Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC) Co-Director Susan A. Shaheen; TSRC researchers Adam P. Cohen, Jacquelyn Broader, Richard Davis; and ICF’s Les Brown, Radha Neelakantan, and Deepak Gopalakrishna recently published Mobility on Demand Planning and Implementation: Current Practices, Innovations, and Emerging Mobility Futures
Abstract: This report provides Mobility on Demand (MOD) planning and implementation practices and tools to support communities. The report discusses different stakeholders in the MOD ecosystem and the role of partnerships in filling spatial, temporal, and other service gaps. Additionally, the report discusses how MOD can be integrated into transportation planning and modeling. The report also discusses shared mobility implementation considerations, such as rights-of-way management, multimodal integration, data sharing, equity, labor impacts, and the role of pilot evaluations. Finally, the report discusses technology developments with implications for the MOD ecosystem, such as shared automated vehicles (SAVs), urban air mobility (UAM), and last-mile delivery innovations. This report is a practical resource with: 1) current practices for planning and implementing MOD; 2) case studies and lessons learned; 3) considerations to help public agencies advance MOD in their communities; and 4) resources and recommended reading.
