Mobility Management and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

Mobility management is the idea of using available resources to get passengers from point A to point  B. It usually focuses on coordination between different agencies providing transportation, and may include a technological component (ITS), such as scheduling and dispatching software, or regional website-based demand-response services.

The National Center for Mobility Management is a partnership between Easter Seals Project ACTION (ESPA), Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), and American Public Transit Association (APTA), that provides resources and information about mobility management, including a newsletter.
