Share Your Practices Database
The Mobility Management Information Practices (MMIP) database is a repository of promising mobility management practices that is searchable by
- FTA region
- Political jurisdiction (state, city, county)
- Type of practice
- Community demographic (rural, urban, etc)
We hope that gathering this information, including details about the practice and the context in which it was implemented, will assist other communities to make informed decisions about applying a particular practice within their own setting.

Performance Measures for Mobility Managers
As members of a growing profession, many mobility management practitioners are seeking to establish performance measures for their activities. Performance measures enable organizations and practitioners to
- Outline expected activities to be pursued
- Provide accountability to funders and end users on the effectiveness of those activities
- Highlight areas where activities can be improved
Performance measures begin with specific, measurable, and realistic objectives and measure impact by analyzing input, output, and outcomes. For assistance on developing performance measures, use the resources on the Performance Measurement "By Topic" page.
Mobility Management—Where to Begin?
To support communities just beginning mobility management and to help existing practitioners develop their portfolio of activities, NCMM has gathered model mobility manager job descriptions, a listing of mobility management websites nationwide, and information on how transportation agencies are engaging in mobility management.
