Covid-19 Resource Center

The definition of mobility is radically different than it was quite recently. With a ringing chorus of #flattenthecurve, social distancing and the shuttering of community events, workplaces, and gatherings is now the norm. Mobility managers’ roles have always needed to be fluid – shifting to address the changing mobility needs of local riders and community members. Now more than ever, the flexibility, creativity, and empathy that are pillars of this work will be critical to serving your community. For example, transportation services typically help community members travel to get groceries, medications, and other essential supplies. Now, we are asking how can we bring groceries, medications, etc. to the community members?

While there is much to learn regarding Covid-19, NCMM has published a blog post on steps mobility managers can take during this time to support their communities which you can access below. We have also collected the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the FTA and our partners; APTA, CTAA, and Easterseals. Additionally, please let us know how you are handling the pandemic through our brief survey at the bottom of this page.
