The National Center for Mobility Management is an initiative of the United We Ride program, and is supported through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Transit Administration. Learn more about us by downloading our brochure (pdf or Word doc) or viewing our introductory video.
The mission of the Center is to facilitate communities to adopt transportation strategies and mobility options that empower people to live independently, and advance health, economic vitality, self-sufficiency, and community.
The Center’s primary activities will support Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grantees,
mobility managers, and partners in adopting proven, sustainable, and replicable transportation
coordination, mobility management, and one call–one click transportation information
practices. These activities are described below.
- Provide assistance to communities through NCMM Regional Liaisons, a peer-to-peer
network, short-term technical assistance, web resources, and one-on-one phone and e-mail support
- Deliver in-person and virtual trainings, a monthly e-newsletter, webinars, and conference calls
- Disseminate descriptions of relevant promising practices, including "snapshots" of a particular topic or trend as well as a more in-depth database of practices
- Collaborate with mobility management practitioners through several communication forums
- Align and support the goals and activities of the Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) and the Federal Transit Administration’s United We Ride program
