Mobility Management and Coordination

The mobility management ethos of matching services to mobility market needs without a bias to a particular mode is the key guiding principle in all of Mobility Planners’ services.   Mr. Chambers has completed work at the local city, county, state and federal level on planning, researching, funding and implementing the best practices in mobility management strategies.   This has included traditional and non-traditional fixed route, flex-route or route deviation, dial-a-ride, checkpoint dial-a-ride, shuttles, user-side taxi subsidy programs,  community service routes, vanpools, bicycling, pedestrian access or fostering mobility enhancing development.

While Mr. Chambers has been fortunate to participate in two Transit Cooperative Research Program studies on national best practices on the subject, Mr. Chambers focuses on practical and cost-effective mobility management strategies for his clients.  He provides a hands-on approach in working with partners to conduct market research to determine which mobility management strategy would best meet the market needs in the most cost-effective manner.

Recent example of work where mobility management was a particular emphasis has included:
