Mobility management

Mobility management is a customer-focused approach to connecting riders with transportation services so that seniors, people with disabilities, low-income workers, and youth can access the trips they need to get to jobs, services, and community life.

What is a Mobility Manager?

Mobility managers help people get where they need to go, using all transportation resources in a community. Mobility managers:

  • Are knowledgeable about a variety of transportation services in the area
  • Help individuals plan trips and arrange rides
  • May also work with transportation providers to help them meet riders’ needs and encourage them to coordinate with each other
  • Advocate to policymakers on the importance of community transportation, mobility, and access

Examples

  • Transition tool - created by Easterseals Massachusetts for educators to use to help students with disabilities become familiar with a range of transportation options
  • TRIPPS - initiative of the Brookline Council on Aging to offer mobility management to older adults in Brookline
  • Find more examples in the monthly MassMobility newsletter
