Mobility Management Center Issues Access Design Challenge

The FTA-funded National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM) is accepting applications through March 27 for its Healthcare Access Mobility Design Challenge. NCMM--operated by a consortium of APTA, the Community Transportation Association of America and Easter Seals--is seeking eight community teams to design innovative solutions to common transportation challenges related to healthcare.

Each multidisciplinary team selected to participate in the six-month challenge will receive grant funds of up to $25,000 and technical assistance to take potential solutions from concept to impact. The teams will organize broad-based coalitions, including members from healthcare, transportation, consumer advocacy organizations, technology, consumers and caregivers.

During the challenge period, each selected team will work to create two concepts through engagements with customers and other stakeholders, selecting one concept to prepare for implementation. The goal is to show that the proposed solution that will be used by riders and customers from the healthcare system is operationally and technologically feasible and financially viable and sustainable.
