Connecting and Transforming the Future of Transportation: a Brief and Practical PRIMER for Implementing Sustainable Door-to-Door Transportation Systems in Communities and Regions
The purpose of the Primer is to describe and document new integrative approaches, guiding principles, and living examples that will serve SMART partner communities. It is also meant to serve businesses, community leaders, transportation practitioners and policymakers who are interested in improving and transforming their transportation systems (and related economies) as whole systems. This Primer aims to contribute to a growing literature of integrative and practical approaches for implementing multi-modal, “next generation” transportation and transportation infrastructure. More broadly, it aims to contribute to advancing livability, sustainability, and economic vitality in communities and city regions of the world through systems-based transportation.
Connectivity is Key: Transportation is not simply one mode that moves a person or a good from A to B. It is much more interesting and useful than that. It is a system, or rather a “system of systems” connecting modes, services, technologies and designs according to the best option for a specific purpose.
Accessibility is the goal. Mobility is a means, not an end. Our aim with transportation is not to move for the sake of moving, it is to help us live our lives and carry out our business – to live, love, work, and play. Thinking of it this way opens up new options.
If you are interested in setting New Mobility in motion in your community, here are four simple steps that can help get you started:
- Convening – The Crucial and Often Under-Rated First Step
- Mapping - An Engaging and Tangible Catalyst for Action
- Piloting (and Roll-Out) – Creating a Hologram for Wider Spread Roll-Out
- Moving Minds – Telling the New Story
