Data is a big topic in the public sector, but too often an abstract concept. How can cities harness the power of data and apply it to improving mobility? What skills are required by departments internally and how does a city develop the capacity for it? What are best practices for compelling data-sharing from regulated mobility service providers?

Understanding and Regulating Shared Mobility
          Hunter Owens, City of Los Angeles

The Oakland Department of Transportation is California’s newest big city DOT. Formed as a new model for urban mobility, OakDOT is leading the way with progressive policies that formally recognize and aim to redress past injustices.

Declining ridership across the country, and especially California, has motivated transit agencies to self-assess and develop strategies to remain competitive in the new mobility landscape. Recent innovations make transit better at its core competency — moving many people through limited space — and promise to make a transit rider’s experience more seamless in the future..

Prioritizing the Bus while Reconnecting Communities

          Jay Monty, City of Everett, Mass.

A Vision for Seamless Public Mobility: The California Integrated Travel Program

Your time to shine.

Curbs have become the most hotly contested urban spaces. From new private courier, rideshare, and scooter services to new public uses like parkets, transit lanes, and bike corrals, demand for curb space has elevated its status as a public asset. Many cities have started using asset management techniques to take control of curbs, and others taking the approach off the curb and into the streets and sidewalks.  

Organizational Change for Public Mobility
       Sarah Jones, SFMTA

Managing New Mobility on the Curb and Beyond in Santa Monica
          Francie Stefan, City of Santa Monica

Streets as Public Riches: Asset Management in the Right-of-Way
          Michael Manville, Associate Professor, UCLA Urban Planning

Seattle and King County have put equity at the center of their community engagement programs, creating more representative community participation, successful implementation of transit priority, and increases in transit service and ridership. Terry White will conclude our forum, discussing how Seattle and King County Metro changed their community outreach process, and what other jurisdictions can learn from their efforts.

Brian Taylor, Director, UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies
