Alameda CTC Mobility Management Initiatives

The Alameda County Transportation Commission has been working on Mobility Management initiatives with various partners for several years. There has always been a strong focus on consumers, with an all-consumer Paratransit Coordinating Council known as the Paratransit Advisory and Planning Committee (PAPCO). PAPCO is supported by the Paratransit Technical Advisory Committee (ParaTAC) which is attended by staff from the ADA paratransit programs, city-based paratransit programs and community based transportation providers. Both committees began learning about and discussing Mobility Management in 2010. The Alameda CTC has been working closely with AC Transit and Eden I&R to implement Alameda County’s Mobility Management one call/one click resource, which can be found at www.alamedaco.info.

The Alameda CTC has included multiple Mobility Management topics and sessions in the annual Mobility Workshop. There has also been a strong effort to include Mobility Management programs as appropriate for funding through the Implementation Guidelines and Gap Grant Program Guidelines.

In 2012 the Alameda CTC was awarded a New Freedom grant by the MTC to further Mobility Management in Alameda County. Through this grant, the Alameda County Travel Training Group meets quarterly. Potential one call/one click programs are being supported. The Alameda CTC has been working closely with AC Transit and Eden I&R to implement Alameda County’s Mobility Management one call/one click resource.
