There is a lot of hype about the potential for MaaS and connected/automated vehicles to increase mobility choices for people who don’t drive, e.g., persons with disabilities, those who can’t afford a car, and children, to name a few. But this outcome won’t just evolve magically from market growth. It has to be shaped intentionally by agency staff and officials responsible for equitable access to transportation networks. During this session, a panel of seasoned researchers and agency staff will share insights and facilitate discussion with all participants to identify realistic strategies transportation planners and decision makers can use to optimize access to existing and emerging mobility options for all their constituents.
