Announcing the Inclusive Mobility on Demand GranteesDate Published: September 4, 2020
The Transit Planning 4 All Project has selected the three awardees for its Inclusive Mobility on Demand Grant. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to weave together inclusive transportation planning, development, and implementation with grassroots-driven mobility on demand (MOD) solutions.
The selected applicants and their planned work are:
Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (NAIPTA)
NAIPTA will be developing a project in an underserved area of Flagstaff to create an on-demand service that will utilize para-transit vehicles, TNCs, and taxis.
Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC)
ARC will organize and implement a community-led Mobility on Demand system and transactional data exchange in Clarkston, GA, a small suburb of northeast Atlanta.
Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT)
SDOT will implement an inclusively designed Mobility on Demand service providing rides to transit connections throughout the city of Seattle, as well as King County and the broader Puget Sound region.
The selected applicants will work to fully engage people with disabilities, older adults, and caregivers in partnership with transportation, planning, and human services organizations to identify, develop, and implement mobility on demand solutions that respond to local transportation barriers and issues and test a standard way of sharing trip data to support coordination and mobility on demand.
Updates on the projects will be posted to the TP4A website periodically.
