Mobility Managers and Transportation Planners: Together, Facilitating Public Input into Transportation Plans

(April 16, 2015, 2:00 p.m. ET) Transportation planners are employing creative strategies to ensure the public can provide meaningful input into planning efforts. Since the passage of MAP-21 and the administration’s focus on Ladders of Opportunity, planning agencies are seeking to augment these outreach strategies to better include older adult, people with disabilities, and lower income audiences. Mobility managers, with their reach deep into the community, are natural partners for planners in bringing these segments of the population into transportation planning efforts. In this webinar, Dwayne Weeks, Director of FTA’s Office of Planning, will join with presenters from local agencies to discuss the roles FTA, FHWA, and MPOs play in transportation planning and innovative examples for boosting public participation. The latter half of the webinar will be a panel discussion of how mobility managers and transportation planners can together accomplish the important work of enhancing public input into coordinated transportation planning as well as broader long- and short-term transportation planning.
