The National Transit Institute (NTI) will sponsor a course on mobility management September 17-18 in Dallas, Texas. Advancing Mobility Management is designed to help build the capacity of transit professionals to implement and scale up mobility management strategies and initiatives and expose participants to promising practices in the field.
Mobility management is a strategic approach to designing and delivering transportation services that starts and ends with the customer.

The course will address:
- Leading change in your organization and community

- Building connections among integration partners
- Tools to assist in partnership development
- Measuring mobility management success and performance
- Program and project implementation
