Mobility Management Implementation Task Force

The objective for the Mobility Management Implementation Task Force consists of identifying the winning conditions to allow a transit system to realize the shift towards integrated mobility and mobility management from its current state of business. This work builds on that done by the previous Integrated Mobility Task Force who recommended a broader stakeholder group be created to guide the application of the work of the Integrated Mobility Task Force to CUTA membership, products and services, and to consider recommendations around an Integrated Mobility standing committee. This Task Force will include a cross-section of stakeholders representing multiple modes, integrators, and subject-matter experts, which may also include non-members. This is an invitational Task Force, has a 2 year mandate and reports into the TSC.
