2014 Mobility Management Conference

Presented by the Community Transportation Association of America, June 9-10, 2014

The need for innovative transportation solutions to health care and job-related destinations has never been greater. This two-day conference explored creative responses implemented by mobility management practitioners to expanding options in these areas. Attendees heard from experts in the health care and job development fields, including a long-time dialysis patient and representatives from the Mayo Clinic's Center for Innovation; engaged in discussions and small-group work to identify essential components of responsive health care and job access solutions; and through guided design activities, began brainstorming new mobility solutions for their community. Over 150 peers from around the country participated.
