The National Center for Mobility Management describes mobility management as “an approach to designing and delivering transportation services that starts and ends with the customer. It begins with a community vision in which the entire transportation network—public transit, private operators, bicyclists and pedestrians, volunteer drivers, and others—works together with customers, planners, and stakeholders to deliver the transportation options that best meet the community’s needs.”
Mobility management activities supported by the Alameda County Transportation Commission include transportation information and referrals, individualized transportation needs assessments and service linkages, trip planning and coordination services, and travel training.

The Alameda CTC Commission is advised by 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 programs and community based transportation providers. These committees have helped provide guidance to Alameda CTC’s mobility management initiatives.
