The National Center for Mobility Management is a national technical assistance center funded through a cooperative agreement with the Federal Transit Administration and operated through a consortium of three national organizations—the American Public Transportation Association, the Community Transportation Association of America, and Easterseals Inc.
NCMM recently announced two new training/technical assistance opportunities.
Collaborations to Reduce Social Isolation:
NCMM is seeking Letters of Interest from State and Tribal Agencies for a technical assistance opportunity to reduce social isolation for older adults. NCMM will facilitate collaborations among state-level agencies within a single state or tribal nation who are interested in working together to address the positive role of transportation in reducing social isolation among older adults. Eligible agencies include state or tribal departments of transportation, public health, aging, and similar agencies that have a role relevant to the issue. Learn more about the opportunity
Training on One-Call/One-Click Systems
NCMM is seeking Letters of Interest from State, Regional, or Tribal agencies for a two part virtual training on One-Call/One-Click systems. The two-part initiative, requires state/regional/tribal applicants to assist in disseminating information to local communities within their boundaries. NCMM will provide free trainings to local communities selected within selected states, regions, or tribal nations, intending to increase relationships between state, regional, or tribal leaders and local communities implementing One-Call/One-Click systems. Eligible organizations include state departments of transportation, tribal nations, or other state- or regional-level organizations that can fund, provide guidance, and otherwise support local communities in setting up OC/OC systems.
One-Call/One-Click systems inform the public about most, if not all, available transportation options for all populations in a given geographic area. In their full deployment, One-Call/One-Click systems enable users to access trip information; where required, confirm eligibility for and book trips; and pay for trips. This allows community members to plan and implement travel within a single system or seamlessly across multiple systems.
