Workshop Description
Would communities and employers in your region like to expand transportation options for access to work, healthcare, school, shopping, and social activities? Maybe you’re adding public transit or demand response service or considering shared ride, bike share or bike libraries for residents and visitors. Perhaps you’d like to expand mobile-based apps or enhance marketing and awareness about existing transportation options.   

No matter your mobility goals, reach out to the Western Transportation Institute, National Association of Development Organizations Research Foundation, and National Rural Transit Assistance Program to learn how small towns and rural areas across the U.S. are moving beyond traditional transportation and adopting new mobility!
