Urban Mobility Collider

Creating the playbook how to mix public transit and private transportation services for true multi-modal mobility in cities. 
Cities are getting increasingly congested due to citizens, residents, commuters, and visitors dependence on single-occupancy car trips. This Collider addresses the policy challenges and emerging technologies necessary to address the challenges of mobility on a regional level, with a particular focus on the first mile and last mile and how to combine public sector and private sector entities into a multi-modal and more seamless transit solution.

Lead metro: 34 cities of Miami-Dade County.

The goal of this Collider is to create the playbook to resolve the policy issues involved with this problem, to outline solutions and emerging technologies that could be part of the solution to this problem.
