Shared Mobility Policy and Modeling Workshop

Authors: Susan Shaheen, PhD, Adam Cohen, and Emily Farrar

Date: April 2019


In March 2019, the Local Government Commission (LGC) and theTransportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC) at the University of California, Berkeley hosted the Caltrans Shared Mobility and Policy Toolkit Workshop. The workshop facilitated a dialogue of approximately 100 participants representing local, state, and regional governments; private companies; nonprofits and community-based organizations; and educational institutions. Key goals of the workshop included:

  • Enhancing public agency (public transit, local, regional, and state) preparedness for enabling mobility solutions and technologies (both public and private);
  • Learning about opportunities for public/private collaboration to deliver shared transportation services;
  • Advancing incorporation of shared mobility into transportation planning and modeling approaches; and
  • Preparing for the growing role of micromobility and shared automated vehicles (SAVs) in the transportation ecosystem.

This report summarizes the workshop discussions.
