Innovations in Mobility: Transformational Ideas from Across the Continent

Recorded On: 11/09/2021

It's not easy for transit agencies to deploy new technologies or service models that save money or improve the passenger experience.  Creative start-ups can be overwhelmed by extensive procurement processes, and existing infrastructure may not easily accommodate a desired extension, update or integration. Drawing from the experiences of several transit systems that have launched creative technology pilots, and from key takeaways from APTA's Innovations in Mobility Webinar series, the panel will explore how agencies can move quickly when a great idea presents itself, while collecting data that informs decisions about whether to ultimately end the pilot or expand it.
