Transportation and mobility is constantly evolving and innovating to address the challenges facing commuters in their journeys to work! To keep up with these changes, TDM programs and professionals most continue to adapt and plan for the future. We need to adopt new strategies of behavior change, take advantage of change moments, and think about the future of our transportation systems.

Determining the Best Bikeshare System for your Community or Campus
Suzanne Williams, UNC Greensboro
Stations, kiosks, undocked, and ad-hoc, there are many ways to design and implement a successful bike share system, but how do you determine which is right for your community, campus, or region.  This session will present how a university and city went through the decision making process and lead into a group discussion about the benefits and challenges of the various systems and the questions you should be asking as you develop your own successful bike share system.

Evolving World of Funding for TMAs
Andrea Leary, Northeast Transit
Moderator: Patrick Sullivan, Seaport TMA
TMAs have long depended on membership dues and CMAQ dollars for the majority of their funding.  To ensure their financial health, many have begun to expand their business models and explore new avenues for revenue generation that provide value added benefits to their membership and communities.  This session will feature examples from TMAs that have developed or are looking to develop non-traditional funding/membership models including Business Improvement Districts, strengthened regulatory requirements, and development agreements and lead into a discussion about how TMAs should begin to prepare themselves for a future that may include less support from CMAQ.

Innovations Impacts on TDM: How does the TDM industry Adjust to the Growth of AV, EV, and TNCs
Chris Barker, Chris Barker Consulting
Greg Rodriguez, Best, Best, & Krieger

The TDM industry is going through a significant change as new innovative services are being introduced into our communities.  Autonomous, Electric, and shared services could be TDMs most impactful tools and lead us down a path towards an efficient, affordable, and clean transportation system, which reduces single occupancy vehicles and increases mobility - or not.  Hear from experts on how communities and TDM organizations can prepare themselves and ensure these new services achieve their desired outcomes.

Effecting Meaningful Transportation Behavior Change Through Motivational Interviewing
Hannah Crum, Alta Planning + Design

As TDM professionals we are trained to connect people with tools and information that can help them change their transportation habits. Information and tools can support transportation behavior change, but how can we go deeper? How do we help people explore the personal barriers and motivators they face to riding the bus to work or biking to the store? This interactive session will focus on the principles and skills of Motivational Interviewing and how they can be applied to effect meaningful transportation behavior change. Typically used by public health professionals, Motivational Interviewing is a goal-oriented and participant-centered style of coaching designed to help people change their behavior, from quitting smoking to increasing physical activity. In the context of TDM programs, this technique can be used to guide someone through the process of finding a transportation solution that works for them. 

12:15pm – 1:30pm: 40 Under 40 Awards Luncheon


1:45pm – 3:15pm: Concurrent Sessions

Using Change Moments to Shift Behavior
Shifting people from driving alone in their cars to other modes requires an ability to change and manage human behavior. Shifting behavior during a change moment, like a city-changing special event demands planning and easily implementable programs to affect change at a larger level. This session will include examples from the Pan Am Games in Toronto, and event-based TDM in South Bay, CA.  You will walk away with quick, easy, and impactful ideas on how to engage companies and the public to create meaningful travel behavior change in your community.

At the MTC, citizens learn how to best utilize RTC fixed route transit services, as well as obtain Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Paratransit certification, providing them with independence and the freedom to travel to various destinations throughout Southern Nevada. The MTC tour will feature modern classrooms and an assessment center to show firsthand transit boarding and farebox experience. You will see the rich learning environment of the MTC and how they arm individuals with the necessary tools to access public transportation that will take them to jobs, appointments and social activities.
